pastor and two representatives. Any church with more than fifty

LOCATION OF NEW CHURCHES AND MISSIONS REPORT 



The following report presented by Rev. Joe Bridges, Chairman of the Committee 
on the Location of New Churches and Missions, was adopted. 

Missions have always been a going business. In the gospel according to Mark 
16:15, Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole 
creation". Again, in Acts 1:8, Jesus re-emphasized the necessity to go, "...and 
ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in 
Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth". Therefore, it is in harmony 
with the mind and heart of Jesus to begin in the local church and radiate out 
"unto the uttermost parts of the earth". 

Two of our churches started mission Sunday Schools this year. On October 2, 
1960 the Sandy Mush Baptist Church started a Sunday School at the American Home 
for the Aging. On March 5, 1961 Alexander Baptist Church started a mission 
Sunday School at the Sunset Home for the Aging. We want to commend these two 
fine churches for the work they are doing. 

The Chase Baptist Mission was organized as the Chase Baptist Church on Sunday 
afternoon, February 19, 1961. This new church is located at the Holland's 
Store Crossroads, on the north side of the Harris- Henrietta highway. Forty-three 
people indicated that they desired to become members of the new church and were 
considered charter members. The church called for its pastor Rev. Melvin Flynn, 
who had been pastor of the mission. 

Respectfully submitted, Joe J. Bridges 
WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

Mrs. J.E. Cargill along with Mrs. James Marchman and Mrs. J.D. Crotts pre- 
sented some of the highlights of the Woman's Missionary Union year. The report 
was adopted as follows: 

"Christian Sharing of Possessions" has been the emphasis in Woman's Missionary 
Union during the past year. This has meant not just our material possessions, 
but the sharing of our entire selves. We realize that God wants us, our time, 
talents and complete dedication. As this has been stressed, we feel that it has 
naturally resulted in the giving of our material possessions. 

It is indeed good to report that our gifts have shown great gains. Particularly 
in our special offerings have we seen progress. The amounts given for the Foreign 
Mission offering and the Home Mission offering have exceeded any in past years. 

Even though our young people's work is not progressing rapidly, the directors 
are encouraged that they can witness some fruits of their labors. And these 
directors must be commended, for they work untiringly. 

The Young Woman's Auxiliary has a very bright spot in its year's picture. The 
Young Woman's Auxiliary of Sandy Mush Church held a Vacation Bible School for 
colored children of two churches at Mt. Pisgah Church. They had 135 enrolled 
with an average attendance of 130. The parents and children were most cooperative 
and very enthusiastic over this undertaking. 

Our Girl's Auxiliaries have really been on the move. During Focus Week a 
banquet for Intermediates was held with 178 attending, and a picnic for Juniors 
with 250 attending. The Director planned and directed a Girls' Auxiliary Camp 
at Gardner-Webb College, and 160 girls attended this camp. She also helped to 
organize seven new Girls' Auxiliary groups. 

Sunbeam work is beginning to make some gains. We now have 31 churches with 
Sunbeam Bands. A Sunbeam workshop was held in February with eight receiving 
cards of accreditation. However, the highlight of our year of Sunbeam work was 
the Day Camp at Sandy Run Baptist Church in August. There were 53 eight year old 
Sunbeams who attended and profited by a day of work and play together. 

Five officers attended Inter- racial Meeting in Charlotte last October. Four 
leaders attended Advanced Leadership Training Course in Greensboro. Three 
attended Woman's Missionary Union State Convention in Winston-Salem. Three at- 
tended Woman's Missionary Union Week at Ridgecrest. Nine attended State Woman's 
Missionary Union Workshop at Fruitland. 

Respectfully submitted, Mrs. J.E. Cargill

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

The report on Christian Literature was presented by Rev. Olen Kendrick and 
was spoken to by Marse Grant, Editor of the Biblical Recorder. The report was 
adopted as follows : 

Have you ever stopped to think that God chose to use "writing" as His means 
of self-revelation to the world? Where would the world be today were it not for 
the divinely-written revelation, the Bible? Since God saw fit to use literature 
to reveal His will, as Christians we obviously have a divine plan to follow. In 
1961, this principle still holds true as we think of all the fine Christian 
literature being written. 

When North Carolina Baptists think of their own literature, they naturally 
think of their state Baptist paper since 1833, the Biblical Recorder. Not 
satisfied to live in the past though, the Recorded strives to convey its message 
in an attractive, appealing manner. With the other literature which we have in 
"Charity and Children", "Home Mission", "Commission", and all the organizational 
literature, we feel that we are second to none. 

Circulation of the Biblical Recorder is the highest in history. At the present 
time it is more than 78,000, up more than 10,000 over a year ago. The goal for 
1964 is 10,000, and the help of every church is needed. 

The Sandy Run Association can help greatly in reaching this goal. With 64 
churches in the Association, there are only 27 churches which have the Club Plan. 
7 churches with the Every Family Plan, 28 churches with NO Recorder Plan. The 
total number of subscriptions in the Association is 1,121. 

It is the Recorder's job to keep North Carolina Baptists informed but please 
remember that this is a TWO-WAY street. Even though the Recorder may be judged 
the outstanding paper in S.B. C. , if you are not receiving it, you may have no 
way of knowing what you are missing. 

Respectfully submitted, Olen L. Kendrick. 

The congregation was led in the singing of the hymn, "The Church's One 
Foundation. " 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

The report on the Baptist Hospital was presented by Rev. Harold Brown and was 
spoken to by Everett Gill, representative of the Hospital. The following report 
was adopted. 

The healing of the sick was a part of the work of our Lord while He was here 
among men. He sent the twelve disciples out saying, "Heal the sick, cleanse the 
lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give". 
Matthew 10:8. 

Our Baptist Hospital continues to try to serve our people in thff fullest 
measure possible. Last year it provided its largest number of days of hospital 
care and saw the largest number of patients in the. Clinics - 78,000 visits to 
the Out-Patxent Clinics, from 96 of the 100 counties in the State, and 75,000 
Private Clinic visits. 

The new Progressive Care Unit was opened in March, providing 80 beds for 
patients who do not require the more expensive and intensive care of the regular 
hospital. 

A new type of unit for the sterilization of surgical and other equipment by 
gas was recently installed. In the X-Ray Department a rapid film developer is 
now in use which greatly speeds the preparation of x-ray films. 

One of the most recent additions is a Pastors' Library given by Mrs. Walter 
M. Williams of Burlington in memory of her noble Christian husband. 

There are some acute needs of our Hospital. One of the most pressing needs is ; 
a building to provide classrooms and other facilities for the eight schools 
operated by the Hospital. These schools are training urgently needed medical 
personnel and Christian workers in addition to doctors. 



- 24 - 



The need for enlargement of the overcrowded and seriously limited Out-Patient 
Department, Children's Center, and Psychiatry section of the Hospital is urgent. 

The constant need for Mother's Day Funds for helping Service Patients bear 
the cost of their hospitalization grows more and more acute. We cannot emphasize 
too strongly the importance of this Fund and the need for our churches greatly 
to enlarge their Mother's Day offerings. 

A new opportunity to help meet this need is now open in the Service Patients 
Endowment Fund. Gifts in any amount can be made at any time in one's own name, 
in memory of a friend, as a memorial to a loved one, or the Endowment can be 
placed in one's will. All gifts will be gratefully received, appropriately 
acknowledged, and a permanent record kept of each one. We hope you will think 
and pray about this and that many will take advantage of this opportunity. 

Respectfully submitted, Harold Brown.

dent of Gardner-Webb College. The reports were adopted as follows: 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we come to make this annual report to 
the association. 

The only purpose or aim of the associational Sunday School officers is to 
help the churches through the proper use of their Sunday Schools to bring the 
lost to Jesus, and lead the saved to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in 
daily living. 

This year our association is reporting sixty-four churches and sixty-four 
Sunday Schools. Our Sunday School enrolment this year is 15,106 an increase of 
178 over last year. 
Achievements this past year: 28 Churches observed January Bible Study. 

61 Vacation Bible Schools 
2 New Sunday Schools (Mission) 
We respectfully make the following recommendations: 

I. That the Sunday School leadership of each church in our association be 
urged to: 

A. Determine to gain a minimum of 10 per cent in enrolment and 15 per cent 
in attendance. 

B. Move up the pattern of organization by starting new classes and 
departments. 

C. Start a new Sunday School this year. 

D. Provide a training program which would include January Bible Study, 
Preparation Week, and Operation Home Study. 

E. Hold a Vacation Bible School. 

F. Give priority to personal witnessing and soul winning. 

G. Encourage all Sunday School workers to participate in the regular 
Sunday School meetings and programs in order that our work may be strengthened 
and that, through cooperation, all churches may carry out their divine commission. 

II. That the Associational Sunday School leadership be urged to: 

A. Enlist a complete organization. 

B. At a clinic train the associational Sunday School officers and plan 
their work a year in advance. 

C. Plan and direct associational group training schools. 

D. Provide regular meetings for training and inspiration of Sunday School 
workers in the churches. 

Respectfully submitted, Charles P. Ginn. 
TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Two problems continue to plague the leadership of the Associational Training 
Union. First, there is always the failure of the great part of the membership 
of our churches to take an active interest in the vital program of training 
through enlisting in the Training Union. Second, it is becoming more and more 
difficult to get our people to attend the associational Training Union meetings. 

As we glance over the record of the past year, two facts stand out. First, we 
still have a number of churches in our association without organized Training 
Union work. Some of these churches do not have pastors living on the field, and 
many problems face those interested in this work. I know of some of the problems 
facing our leaders and pastors in these places. In many cases sincere efforts 
have been put forth to organize and maintain Training Unions. May I urge such 



- 27 - 



leaders not to give up but to renew efforts to light these church houses on 
Sunday night. I challenge our stronger churches to go out and assist these 
churches in this vital work. 

Secondly, we need to re-emphasize our study course work, especially methods. 
We cannot do the job properly without attention to the matter of study. I 
challenge you to accept these two important jobs for this year and give them 
priority in your planning and efforts in Training Union work. 

May this coming year be a year when the stronger churches in training grow 
stronger, and the weaker churches in training seek to be strong. 

Respectfully submitted, Harvey Laughter. 

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST COLLEGES 

You will note that this report has been defined as a "Report on North 
Carolina Baptist Colleges". Such terms as "Christian Education", "Christian 
Higher Education", and "Baptist Colleges" are in common usage today. We usually 
refer to Christian education in the broader §ense, denoting every type of train- 
ing and activity which we provide for the purpose of Christian growth. Our goal 
then should be to provide our children from very birth with an environment that 
is totally Christian. 

Such a concept requires that we make the training in our homes and churches 
Christian in every aspect as we prepare our youth for college. Many difficulties 
and failures in college could be solved and overcome if in the earlier years 
young people were spiritually prepared. 

But in this report we are more directly concerned with the role and ministry 
of our seven Baptist colleges — Campbell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, Mars Hill, 
Meredith, Wake Forest, and Wingate. 

We are not satisfied to be only a good college, nor even a good Christian 
college. There must be the added characteristics which are distinctive to the 
Baptist faith. Our colleges should offer opportunity for a thorough study of 
Baptist history and doctrine to all its students. 

State colleges, by their very nature, work under certain restrictions which 
prevent them from doing this task. We have said throughout our history that the 
teaching of religion is the responsibility of the church. Baptists with our 
homes, churches, and colleges must witness to our faith as it relates not only 
to the means but also to the ultimate ends of life. 

Our forefathers set about to provide colleges where Christian education would 
be provided not only for ministers and other church leaders, but for leadership 
in all areas of social activities. For more than seventy-five years after the 
opening of Wake Forest College, her presidents and supporters often opposed any 
colleges being operated by the state. Evidently, these men foresaw what has 
happened with much of higher education in America today. With a secular state 
providing a secular education we are rapidly losing the early Christian education 
emphasis. Unless something is done quickly to change this trend in America, we 
can find little hope for our churches and our Christian homes. 

Now what can you do to help? 

(1) Be informed and concerned. Read about our colleges, visit them become 
acquainted with the administration, faculty, and students. 

(2) Encourage your best students to attend. 

(3) Pray for these schools. 

(4) Support the Cooperative Program, especially the Program of Advance. 

(5) Promote and support Christian Education Day in your church. 

Respectfully submitted, R.G. Melton. 

Rev. Fritz Hemphill, Friutland Baptist Bible Institute, spoke briefly on the 
work of the institute.

MUSIC MINISTRY REPORT 



The following report on the Music Ministry was presented by Malone Thomason 
and was adopted: 

Our Association at its best has only five full time ministers of music. This 
year our program has been hurt by the resignation of three of these: Mr. Edwin 
Chenoweth of the Cliffside Church, Mr. Carlisle Henderson of the Caroleen Church, 
and Mr. John Blanton of the Florence Church. However, we are happy to report 
that Mr. Don White has recently come to Cliffside, and Mr. James Hall is 
scheduled to arrive at Caroleen this week. 

Though we have been handicapped, we are glad to report some very worthwhile 
activities. On Monday night, December 19, at 7:00 o J clock we held a successful 
Associational Christmas Carol Sing on the Town Square of Forest City with near 
150 in attendance. The regional Choir Festival last March was held at the First 
Church, Forest City, with several choirs of our churches participating and 
doing their churches and our Association credit, all qualifying to participate 
in the State Festivals. 

One very successful Associational Hymn Sing was held with 208 in attendance. 

In addition, our organization sponsored music and singing at various meetings 
of the other organizations, especially Sunday School and Training Union meetings. 
We want to mention especially the singing at "M" Night and the Associational 
Evangelistic Conference. 

Moreover, the Associational Music Officers met six times during the year in 
planning the various activities. 

Respectfully submitted, Malone Thomason, Jr. 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

Rev. L.R. McNeill presented the following report on the Brotherhood, which 
was adopted. 

The 1960-1961 associational year was significant for Baptist Brotherhoods in 
North Carolina. A new plan of organization went into effect on October 1, 1960. 
The Brotherhood Department has given special emphasis to leadership training on 
the new set up. Associational Brotherhood workshops have been held. Also, 
seventy-five men attended the Brotherhood weekend at Fruitland where they re- 
ceived instructions on how to teach the "Church Brotherhood Guidebook". 

A significant event of the year was World Missions Week at our N. C. Assembly 
near Southport. A total of 1,100 men, women, boys, and girls were in attendance. 
This week is sponsored jointly by Brotherhood and the Woman'' s Missionary Union 
of North Carolina and is an annual missionary emphasis. 

In the ten Regional Conferences, the Brotherhood cooperated with the North 
Carolina director of Retirement Plans and the Annuity Board of the S.B.C. in 
presenting the Protection Plan for pastors. 

During the year the Brotherhood Commission published "Effective Christian 
Witnessing" by Nelson Tull which is to be used to teach men how to witness. 

In cooperation with the Brotherhood Commission and the Baptist Convention of 
Ohio, the Brotherhood Department sent 20 men to Ohio for special mission work. 
These men engaged in personal soul winning and conducted services during their 
week-long stay in Ohio. As a result two new missions were established, and the 
Ohio Convention has requested that we send 100 men for a similar crusade next 
year. 

The Royal Ambassador Program is undergoing a change in organizational pj_an 
beginning October 1, this year. The new Plan will be as follows: Crusaders (9-11 
year olds), Pioneers (12-14 year olds), Ambassadors (15-17 year olds). 

A fine new State Royal Ambassador Camp is being developed near Asheboro. 

The Brotherhood and Royal Ambassadors challenge Baptist men and boys to take 
a more active part in the churches 5 efforts to bring the gospel to the whole 
world. These organizations are worthy of our support. 

We believe great things are in store for our Royal Ambassador and Brotherhood 



- 29 - 



work with Brother Bill Holland, a layman, as president, leading us. We urge our 
pastors and men to give him and this great work their loyal support. 

In our Association there are 24 churches with Brotherhoods and an enrollment 
of 505 men, and 25 churches with Royal Ambassador Organizations with an enroll- 
ment of 456 boys. 

Respectfully submitted, L.R. McNeill. 

Rev. M.W. Stallings, Chairman of the Committee on Ordinations, reported that 
there had been no ordinations during the year. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE REPORT 

The report of the committee on Financial Assistance presented by Rev. E. C. 
Willingham was adopted as follows: 

Our State Mission Program, in its efforts to encourage new churches and 
stronger ministries, has provided financial assistance to these deserving 
situations. 

Your committee has approved request for aid to pastor's salary from the Piney 
Mountain Baptist Church, Ellenboro, N.C. in the amount of Ninety Dollars per 
month. Also, approval has been given to request from the Chase Baptist Church 
for aid on new construction in the amount of Twenty-Five Hundred Dollars. 

Respectfully submitted, E. C. Willingham, Jr.

wonderful year's work for us. She did most of the work in preparing the booklets 
of "Advance Reports" and the mimeograph work for the bulletins and most of the 
letters and cards above. Also, she has helped as many as four churches in 
mimeographing their weekly church bulletins and has done other odd jobs of 
mimeograph work for the associational organizations and some churches. We are 
indeed grateful to her. 

The associational missionary would like to express his gratitude for your 
kindness and cooperation in the work. 

Respectfully submitted, W.V. Carroll. 

Rev. Joe Bridges, Chairman of the Committee on the Location of New Churches 
and Missions, made the following recommendation: That the New Bethel Baptist 
Church, having made application to the Annual Session in 1960 and having 
remained under the watchcare of the association for a period of one year, and 
having proved cooperative in the work, be accepted as a member of the associ- 
ation. The recommendation was adopted. 

The following recommendation was also adopted: That the Chase Baptist Church, 
having made application for membership in the assoc at; on, remain under the 
watchcare of the association for a period of one year.

REPORT ON HOMES FOR AGING 

The following report on the Homes for the Aging was adopted and was spoken to 
by William A. Poole, General Superintendent of the Homes. 

Our three Homes for the Aging, Resthaven and Hayes Home in Winston-Salem, and 
the Albemarle Home in Albemarle, have 125 residents. There are 130 on the 
waiting list. 

Lack of room is one of the most acute problems. The Hamilton Home, now under 
construction in Martin County in the east, will help some in meeting this 
problem. It will be ready for occupancy in January and will provide for 30 
additional residents. 

A debt of $275,000 has been assumed on the Hamilton Home and for the indebted- 
ness of the new infirmary at Winston-Salem. So the great need of increasing the 
Special Day Offerings and gifts from our churches is evident. 

One of the most wonderful gifts made to the Homes is the handsome deplex 
apartment by Miss Roxie Sides of Winston-Salem. It is being constructed on the 
Reynolds Park Road in Wins ton-Sal em and will be ready for occupancy this fall. 

The average age of the residents is around 80, and Aunt Fannie Drumwright is 
100. 

During the year fourteen left the Homes for their heavenly home. 
Some of the happiest times in the Homes are when friends and members of North 
Carolina Baptists visit there; so a cordial welcome awaits your visit. 

Respectfully submitted, M. H. Ingle. 

Mrs. Addie Bostic League, a missionary to China for 43 years now retired, was 
recognized. The assembly was led in the singing of "Stand Up, Stand Up for 
Jesus". 

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

Rev. Wade Huntley presented the Stewardship Report, which was adopted as 
follows : 

Stewardship is not only a required duty, but is a wonderful way to express 
our love to God. It reaches beyond material things, it engulfs the whole of man. 
Someone has said that it involves our time, talents, and tithes. 

God J s program of Christian stewardship cannot be improved. His plan to finance 
his cause is laid down in His word. "Now concerning the collection for the 
saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon 
the first day of the week let everyone of you lay by him in store, as God hath 



- 31 - 



prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come". I Corinthians 16:1-2. 
True stewardship is putting God first. God doesn't expect his people to use the 
means and ways of the world to promote His cause. I'm sure the Holy Spirit is 
grieved, and we commit sin before God, in the way some resort to raise money. If 
our people knew God's plan, I'm sure the needs would be met. 

The needs of a lost world are tremendous. Millions have never heard the Gospel 
The need of all causes throughout the world will be met when we lead our people 
to truly be good stewards. 

First, there must be the dedication of our lives unto God for the leadership 
and power of the Holy Spirit. This certainly would include our whole mind, soul, 
and body. Christian stewardship is rooted and grounded in the foundation of 
Divine Love. Resources that come into our churches by any other means are with- 
out the blessing of God. 

The challenge to our people is genuine deep rooted conviction of true 
Christian stewardship, then lead them to walk in the way of the Lord. 

"Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful". 
I Corinthians 6:33. 

Respectfully submitted, Wade H. Huntley. 
AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

The report on the American Bible Society was presented by Rev. Troy Dellinger 
and was adopted as follows: 

Please listen to this earnest appeal of a Chinese college student: "We student: 
want to know Jesus. We must have this book". Then listen to another who says: 
"Your English Bible speaks to my head, but my Chinese Bible speaks to my heart". 

Each person must have the Bible in his own language, because it speaks to his 
heart as no other language can speak. 

The Bible is the essential tool of missions and evangelism. The missionary 
uses it in all his work. The Bible itself is a missionary, but in most lands 
people cannot afford even the cost of printing the Scriptures. The American 
Bible Society helps missionaries to translate the Bible. It publishes without 
note or comment and distributes without profit, usually below cost. In cases of 
special need, at home and abroad, Scriptures are given without charge. The Bible 
Society is an active partner of Southern Baptists and serves every form of 
Southern Baptists work around the world. 

During 1960 the American Bible Society — 

1. Rejoiced that some part of the Bible has been published in 1,165 languages; 
the full Bible in 221, a Testament in 277 more and a Gospel or other complete 
book in 667 more. 

2. Gave over a million Scripture volumes for distribution by Chaplains to our 
Armed Forces and Veteran's Hospitals. 

3. Observed its 125th Anniversary of supplying Scriptures for the Blind. 

4. Enlarged the ministry of the Finger-Fono, a phonograph operated by one 
finger, with Bible records in the languages needed, for use in areas throughout 
the world, where many people cannot read. Records are now available in 30 
languages and others are being prepared. 

5. Helped the Korean Bible Society to realize their long- sought goal of dis- 
tributing more than a million Scripture volumes in a single year; also, rejoiced 
in the sustained interest in Japan where, for the last 5 years, Scripture dis- 
tribution has averaged almost 2 million volumes. 

6. Distributed throughout the world a record total of over 23 million volumes 
of Scriptures. 

Southern Baptists support the work because the Society serves mission work, 
and Southern Baptist missionaries depend on the Bible Society for Scriptures 
they need for their people. In 1960 Southern Baptists churches gave $151,626 
to the American Bible Society; Methodists gifts lead with a total of $151,934. 
Gifts from all churches in the U.S.A. totaled $1,001,768. However, the world- 
wide need for the Bible is still greater than the supply. 



- 32 - 



Has your church given this year? Here are suggestions, based on what many 
churches are now doing. Every church can give at least these amounts each year: 
Smaller churches, $10 to $60; Larger churches, $60 to $300; and Great City 
churches, $300 to $600 or more. 

Send gifts to Douglas M. Branch, Baptist Building, Raleigh, N. C. , marked 
"For the American Bible Society". 

Respectfully submitted, Troy Dellinger. 

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Rev. F.M. Barnes presented the report on the Baptist Children's Homes which 
was spoken to by John Roberts, editor of Charity and Children. The report was 
adopted as follows: 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina is a Christian agency providing 
love and care for more than 800 deserving boys and girls annually. These are 
dependent and neglected children who, for some reason, have found it necessary 
to live away from their homes. 

Your child care ministry is child centered, Christ centered and church centered. 
It is based on the redemptive plan of God. These children have lost their parents 
through a number of ways. Workers use all the skills available, plus the help of 
God, to establish in these children trust in adults, trust in self and trust in 
God. 

Boys and girls live at Mills Home, Kennedy Home, and Odum Home. One hundred 
twenty five children live in Christian Foster Homes throughout the state. Some 
mothers who have lost husband and father receive financial grants in the home 
which enables them to keep and care for their own children. Well trained case 
workers are spending an increasing amount of time working with and strengthening 
families. 

It became necessary during the past year to reduce the number of children in 
Foster Home care by 35 boys and girls. At one time we were caring for 162 
children in Foster Homes. We now have 127. This trend can be changed only as we 
have additional income. Many types of service to children in need are being 
delayed for lack of money. 

Our financial support for this year has come from the following sources: 
Thanksgiving Offering, 33 per cent; Cooperative Program, 32 per cent; Once a 
Month Offerings, 18 per cent; Special Gifts and Endowment, 17 per cent. 

Members of the Board of Trustees, members of the staff and our boys and girls 
wish to thank you for your generous support. You have given these children love, 
food, clothing, shelter, schooling, medical care, recreation, guidance, music 
and hundreds of other benefits. 

One third of our support comes at Thanksgiving time. The Thanksgiving Offering 
goal for 1961 is $400,000.00. Help this to become a reality. 

Respectfully submitted, F.M. Barnes. 

ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 

The following report on the Annuity Board was presented by Rev. W.G. Camp and 
was spoken to by Tom Greene, Director of Retirement Plans. The report was adopted. 

We no longer have a Relief and Annuity Board as we called it in the other 
years. In 1960 the Southern Baptist Convention, while meeting in Miami, Florida, 
approved the new name which is now the Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. This is now the official name of this Board, and we should use the 
new name rather than the old. 

In 1960 the total new membership in all phases of the Annuity Board's plans 
increased 9 per cent over that of 1959. On January 1, 1961 total membership 
stood at 22,578. More than 4,000 participating churches are paying the full 10 
per cent dues. By April 1, 1961 six states had enrolled more than 70 per cent 
of their churches and pastors in the plan. Three states were down to 45 per cent. 
The District of Columbia stood highest with 94 per cent of her churches and 
pastors participating. The average of all the states was 63 per cent in the plan. 



- 33 - 



According to the information as this report is being prepared, in the Sandy Run 
Association there are 30 churches and 27 pastors participating in the Retirement 
Plan. 

During the year I960, $2,754,613.60 was paid to 5,200 retired and disabled 
ministers and denominational workers and widows. A little more than 4,200 of 
these were beneficiaries of the plan. The others were on Relief rolls. Since the 
Board-' s beginning in 1918, it has paid out a little over $34,000,000 in benefits 

Fifteen field representatives now serve in 22 states in the convention. These 
men visit conventions, associations and churches to discuss with any interested 
group the retirement plans for ministers and denominational workers. The splendi 
increase in the number of churches and pastors coming into the Annuity Plan has 
been due largely to the good work done by these field men in various states of 
the convention. Our Field Representative in North Carolina is the Rev. R.T. 
Greene, Baptist Building, Raleigh. Brother Greene will be glad to come and dis- 
cuss these retirement plans with any interested group. Feel free to contact him 
for an engagement at any time. 

Respectfully submitted, W. G. Camp. 
STATE MISSIONS REPORT 



The report on State Missions, which was presented by Rev. M. D. Blanton, was 
adopted as follows: 

Ours is a great state. Within the last few decades North Carolina has made 
great progress, and she is progressing even more rapidly today. Her economy is 
growing stronger, her educational system is expanding and her industrial output 
is constantly increasing. This means that more and more people will have to be 
employed to continue and extend this potential growth and development. 

Such growth and expansion brings responsibility, for progress and responsi- 
bility are inseparable. Our people need Christ more than anything else. In a 
busy, industrial life it is easy to overlook the spiritual needs of people. 

Our State Missions Program is the response of North Carolina Baptists to meet 
this urgent need. Through our State Missions Program we seek to minister to the 
needs of the people as the needs arise. Today we have approximately 4,600,000 
people in the state. About 2,100,000 of these are affiliated with some kind of 
church. This means that around 2,000,000 above the age of eight years are un- 
churches. Perhaps 25 percent of these are only nominal Christians. If this be 
true, then over half of the people in our state are lost spiritually. One out 
of every four of our white population holds membership in our Baptist Churches. 

It is estimated that by 1980, if our present population increase continues, 
we will have 6,300,000 people in North Carolina. Hence, it is imperative that 
we win more people than we have been reaching or our unsaved population will 
reach an even higher percentage. In 1960 we baptized 4,496 less people than we 
did in 1959. Can we afford to be complacent in the light of such a decline in 
baptisms in one year? 

State Missions promote Christian Education, Baptist Student Work in colleges 
and universities, a ministry to the "Silent People", Summer Camps, Schools for 
Pastors, the Christian Action League, Associational Missions, a Department of 
Church Architecture and other projects such as securing building lots for new 
churches and other mission serv/ices. Through this program of State Missions our 
Baptist work is both strengthened and extended throughout the state. 

As Christians, we must see the need before we will respond to its challenge. 
May we, as did Jesus in the long ago, "Lift up our eyes and look on the fields" 
and then give of ourselves, our service and our substance to meet these needs 
in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Master. 

Respectfully submitted, M. D. Blanton

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 



The following report on Home Missions, presented by Rev. J.I. McMahan, was 
dopted: 

A major share of the personnel and resources of the Home Mission Board are 
sed in 30 states of the northern and western sections of the nation. "We have 
.,335 churches in these states where we had only 79 in 1940", Courts Redford, 
xecutive secretary of the board, announced. "Our Missions Division spends more 
han 62 per cent of its budget in this work. " 

The growth of new churches and missions has been accelerated by the 30,000 
ovement, a denominational effort to start 10,000 churches and 20,000 missions 
y 1964. The latest report by C. C. Warren, director of the movement, showed 
1,817 started by January 1, 1961. 

Hawaii Baptists have asked the Evangelism Division for assistance, and other 
ome missxon programs will be started on these islands when requested. An 
ssociational missions program will probably be first. A survey of Puerto Rico 
s being made by the Home Board of needs and opportunities among the island'' s 

l/2 million inhabxtants. 

Despite limitations of travel between the United States and a tense situation 
a parts of Cuba, Baptist work grows on the island. Revivals in the four pro- 
inces where Southern Baptists sponsor work resulted in 5,116 conversions, and 
ifts to the churches increased by 20 per cent to $210,849.00. 

Detroit was allotted $100,000.00 for loans with which to purchase sites and 
uildxngs in the "Big Cities" program. The city joined Chicago, New York, San 
rancisco, and Seattle as areas needing special efforts in financing new 
lurches and missions. 

C.E. Autrey, director of the Division of Evangelism, has given a new emphasis 
3 personal soulwinning and year-around evangelism. The division has promoted 
he Baptist Jubilee Revivals. Baptisms reported by the churches of the Conven- 
ion totaled 386,469. 

Six hundred and sixty four Southern Baptist ministers serve as chaplains for 
he military, institutions, and industry in the United States. An additional 
58 are commissioned in reserve forces, student programs, or the National Guard, 
ccording to George W. Cummins, new director for the Chaplains Division. The 
haplains Division reported 14,053 professions of faith. 

A home mission budget in excess of $4 million (60 per cent from the Cooperative 
rogram and 40 per cent from the Annie Armstrong Offering) supported 2,035 
issionaries during the past year, the largest number ever employed in mission 
ark in the United States, Cuba and Panama. These workers reported 51,463 
aptisms. 

Despite a record force, urgent personnel needs were announced by Glendon 
cCullough, personnel secretary for Good Will Centers, Japanese, Russian, 
panish, and Italian work. "We need more than 270 workers now to fill requests, 
ome vacant for two years because qualified personnel have not been found", he 
aid. 

Respectfully submitted, J.I. McMahan. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

Rev. M. C. Swicegood presented the report on Foreign Missions, which was 
iopted as follows: 

At the beginning of 1961 there were 1,480 Missionar es under appointment for 
ervice in forty-five countries. Advance in foreign missions calls for sending, 
aintaining and enlarging missionary staffs, and cultivation of all types of 
ark on mission fields. The objective of the Foreign Mission Board for this year 
as been to appoint 160 additional missionaries. With the appointment of this 
SO, bringing the total up to 1,640, the missionary section of the operating 
udget for 1962 will need to be expanded $700,000 and necessary increases for 
rograms of work will call for an additional $400,000.00. 



- 35 - 



The Foreign Mission Board makes appropriations for objects which have been 
recommended by the mission fields after very careful study, prayer, and agree- 
ment. On this basis the funds used for mission work enable those projects to be 
undertaken which the missionaries and national leaders consider to be most 
urgent in their respective fields. 

Experience indicates that even the most urgent recommendations will exceed the 
funds available and therefore only a portion can be provided. The urgency of the 
missionary task around the world increases with each day. We must bring to this 
enterprise not only resources in terms of lives and money but increasing spirit- 
ual power through prayer and faith. The Foreign Mission Board looks to the Co- 
operative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for financial resources 
for worldwide missionary labor. May God grant us increasing liberality in 
missionary giving to the end that the labor our Lord is expecting in this day 
can become a reality. 

Respectfully submitted, Malvin C. Swicegood. 

; 

The assembly was led in the singing of "I Love To Tell The Story". After 
special music, "From Greenland-' s Icy Mountains", by a mixed quartet, Dr. Douglas 
M. Branch, General Secretary-Treasurer of the Baptist State Convention, 
delivered the missionary message. 

Following the hymn, "We've A Story To Tell", and prayer by Dr. Zeno Wall, the 
association adjourned for lunch served by the host church. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

The afternoon session opened with music meditation by Mrs. Jim Jones followed 
with several hymns by the Pastors and Music Directors' choir. 
Worship was conducted by Rev. J. Marion Rector. 



CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE REPORT 

The report on the Christian Action League was presented by Rev. Hoke Coon 
and was adopted as follows: 

The wo rid- renowned Dr. Albert Schweitzer has said, "Drink is commercially our 
greatest wastrel, socially our greatest criminal, and morally and religiously 
our greatest enemy". This is true today. 

It is estimated that in the year 1960, there were 68,000,000 American adults 
who drank alcoholic beverages in some degree. Of these, 5,400,000 were alcholics 
and another 4,100,000 were heavy drinkers or problem drinkers. Take into account 
that for each one of these 9,500,000 there are five additional people whose live: 
are adversely affected by their drinking. Alcohol is a potent factor in the 
destruction of many homes, and its victims fill our prisons. It is a major con- 
tributor to the crime rate in our land which is at an all-time high. 

But the story does not end here. Alcohol is writing a very shameful and bloody 
record on the highways of our land. In 1960 there were 37,600 people killed on | 
the highways of the nation and there were 2,870,000 injured in non- fatal acci- 
dents. Some estimates go as high as 75% in the relation of alcohol to these 
accidents. The Highway Patrol says that alcohol was a factor in more than 50% 
of the fatal accidents on North Carolina highways last year. 

No indictment against this No. 1 enemy can be made too strong. 

The Christian Action League is an organization of the evangelical denominations 
of North Carolina for action in areas of common concern in the moral issues of 
the day. An Executive Director is employed for full time service in promoting 
the work of the organization. The financial support of the League comes from 
donations by the affiliated denominations, from churches and from individuals 
who are concerned. 

In particular, the Christian Action League seeks (a) to unite all who believe 
in total abstinence from alcoholic beverages to a cooperative effort to agitate, 
legislate and educate against this social evil; (b) to awaken public interest in 



- 36 - 



oposing gambling, narcotic addiction, salacious literature and acts of 
Lolence and vandalism; (c) to promote programs for the rehabilitation of the 
ictims of alcoholic beverages and other narcotics. 

Respectfully submitted, David H. Coon, Jr. 

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

The following report presented by Rev. Fred Bryant was adopted: 
We are grateful to our heavenly Father who has permitted us to enjoy the 
eventy-Second Annual Session of the Sandy Run Baptist Association, which met 
ith the Spencer Baptist Church the first day and with the Race Path Baptist 
hurch the second day. These two days have been instructive, challenging, 
nspirational and harmonious. God has allowed another year of devoted effort to 
ecome a historical mark the fruits of which only eternity will reveal. 
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we render special thanks to the following: 

(1) That we express gratitude to God for His mercy and His patience toward us,

11 mankind. 

Respectfully submitted, Fred Bryant. 
RESOLUTION RELATING TO A CHANGE IN THE TIME 
OF THE MEETING OF THE ANNUAL SESSION 
The following resolution was also adopted: 

Our Baptist State Board meets annually on Tuesday and Wednesday following the 
econd Sunday in October. It so happens that this is the same time that our 
andy Run Association meets. This present arrangement creates a conflict which 
revents our state workers attending our annual Associational meetings. These 
orkers must be present at the meeting of the State Board in order to represent 
heir respective fields of labor and to make reports relative to their work. In 
rder to eliminate this undesirable situation, your committee on resolutions 
ishes to present the following resolution: 

Whereas, the department heads of the State Board have requested that we change 
he date of our annual Associational meetings, and 

Whereas, our Associational Board has given serious thought to this suggestion, 
nd recognizes the advantage of such a change, and 

Whereas, our Associational Board has approved such a change and recommended 
hat such change be made in the constitution of the Sandy Run Association, and 
as instructed the committee on resolution concerning such a change of date in 
ts annual session. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the time of the annual meeting of the Sandy Run 
ssociation be changed from Tuesday and Wednesday following the second Sunday in 
ctober to the Tuesday and Wednesday following the third Sunday in October of 
ach year. 

- 37 Respectfully submitted, Fred Bryant. 



Rev. Fred Bryant also presented the following resolution which was adopted. 

Due to the fact that both the Steering Committee and the Associational Board 
have recommended that the names of the Associational Officers, other than the 
general officers, be presented for approval by the Associational Board in the 
July meeting instead of the September meeting each year henceforth. 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: 

That our Association go on record as adopting this recommendation and that thi 
necessary changes be made in Article VII, Section 2 and Item 4 of our consti- 
tution to comply with this recommendation from our Associational Board and the 
Steering Committee. 

Respectfully submitted, Fred Bryant.

Rev. T.W. Estes led in the memorial 


prayer. 



The report of the Nominating Committee was given by Rev. L.N. Epley. The report 
was adopted and is included in the Associational Directory of these minutes. 
A solo, "The Ninety And Nine", was rendered by Don White. 

EVANGELISM REPORT 

The report on evangelism was presented by Rev. Guy Johnson and was adopted as 
follows: 

These are tremendous days in which we live. Billions are being spent for get- 
ting men to the moon, while comparatively little is spent for getting men to 
God. Multitudes sit in darkness and many in despair while the forces of darkness 
move constantly in a dedicated abandon toward their objectives. The number of 
hopeless people - hopeless because they do not know Christ - grows daily. The 
world's population is increasing by 48,000,000 per year. All religions are 
winning only 10,000,000 per year.

j 

Many of these lost people live in the territory of our association. They live 
near our churches. In regard to their need for God they have been deluded by 
the powers of darkness, and numbers of them dissolutioned^y the apathy and 
lack of dedication to Christ on the part of professed Christians. Surely this 
is the time for total dedication to Christ in His purpose of winning the 
multitudes to God. 

To move forward we must start from where we are. Our association is the best 
launching place for new frontiers in evangelism and missions. 
Therefore, we recommend: 

1. That we encourage ourselves in the Lord our God for the resurging interest 
in evangelism across our Convention, continuously praying that God may work in 
us and through us to bring the revival we need. 

2. That our association participate in the "Baptist Jubilee Revivals" in 1962 
through 1964. Our dates are as follows: 1962, March 18 - April 1; 1963, March 
17 - 31; 1964, March 8-22. 

3. That each church prayerfully and studiously consider participating in the 
Baptist Jubilee Revival, and that special emphasis in all revivals and week by 
week evangelism throughout the year be placed upon personal, face-to- face, 
heart-to-heart soul-winning and faithful teaching and preaching. 

4. That all churches make full use of the Revival Plan Book for 1962, 1964, 
supplied free to all pastors by the Division of Evangelism, Baptist State 
Convention. 

5. That our association have an Evangelism Clinic following the suggested 
program supplied by the Division of Evangelism. The date for our Clinic is 
November 27, 1961. 

6. That our association recognize the elected associational officers as the 
evangelism committee, the Chairman of Evangelism to be the Chairman of this 
committee, and that we pledge our wholehearted cooperation to this committee. 

7. That our association send the Chairman of Evangelism to Ridgecrest for the 
annual conference on Evangelism during Home Mission Week. 

8. That we commit ourselves to the following outline of achievement for 1962. 
I. CHAIRMAN OF EVANGELISM — An evangelistic pastor elected to promote 

perennial soul-winning in all churches. 
II. ASSOCIATIONAL EVANGELISM CLINIC. 
III. ANNUAL BAPTIST JUBILEE REVIVAL — Eighty percent of churches partici- 
pating. 

IV. ALL CHURCHES CONDUCTING REVIVALS. 
V. EACH CHURCH WINNING AND BAPTIZING NEW MEMBERS. 

Respectfully submitted, Guy Johnson. 

After the hymn, "Amazing Grace", the moderator appointed the Committee on 
Committees, which appears in the associational board committees in these minutes 

Since Rev. J.S. Hopkins, who was to have brought the evangelistic message, 
failed to appear, the Annual Session adjourned with prayer led by Rev. E.S. 
Elliott. 

There were 398 messengers and visitors registered on the second day.

The Rev. Clifford C. Crow 



To Whom These Minutes Are Affectionately Dedicated 

C. C. Crow was born in the Big Springs Baptist Church Community 
in Rutherford County on August 5, 1900. He gave his heart to Christ 
and joined the Big Springs Church when he was fifteen years of age. 

In 1924 he married Minnie Tooney. Later he felt the Lord calling 
him to preach and went back to school, finishing high school and then 
going on to Wake Forest College in September, 1930 and graduating 
with a B.A. Degree in June, 1933. 

The Big Springs Church ordained Brother Crow to the gospel ministry 
on December 26, 1931. 

After graduating from Wake Forest College, he accepted the pas- 
torate of some churches in the Kings Mountain Association and later 
in the Sandy Run Association and alternated in serving churches in 
these associations. At one time he was honored in being elected as mod- 
erator of the Kings Mountain Association. 

Brother Crow served the following churches in the Sandy Run As- 
sociation: Bethany, Bethel, Campfield Memorial, Concord, Mt. Lebanon, 
Race Path, and Sulphur Springs. He came to the Sulphur Springs Church 
in August, 1958, and served until his retirement at the end of October of 
this year, 1962. For the past two years he has also served with honor 
and distinction as moderator of our Sandy Run Association. 

Brother Crow is most faithful and dependable. He has been a great 
pastor, loved, honored, and cherished by his church members as few 
pastors have be,en. Seldom is a man so highly esteemed by fellow min- 
isters and laymen alike. He is a cherished friend and faithful servant of 
God, greatly appreciated by all of us. 

We salute this honored man of God. May the good Lord bless and 
give this noble and esteemed servant of His many more happy years.

LOCATION OF NEW CHURCHES AND MISSIONS REPORT 

The following report, along with the recommendations contained there- 
in, presented by Rev. John Scalf, was adopted.

Baptist Church for the past twelve months including the study of this 
year's results as recorded in the annual letter to the Sandy Run Baptist 
Association, the committee makes the following recommendations: 

1. That the Chase Baptist Church be accepted into the full fellowship 
of the Sandy Run Baptist Association with all rights, privileges, and re- 
sponsibilities being granted to them and expected of them beginning 
immediately, and 

2. That we express our appreciation to them for their sincere efforts 
to found their church according to the principles and precepts of the 
Southern Baptist Convention.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

After the adoption of the following report on the Woman's Missionary 
Union, Mrs. J. E. Cargill, Mrs. James Marchman, Mrs. Earl Baldwin 
and Mrs. Earl JoJley presented a skit on the organization and history 
of Woman's Missionary Union in the Sandy Run Association. 

Fifty years the women of Sandy Run Association have "Labored To- 
gether with God." In April the women celebrated their Golden Anni- 
versary when they met in the Mt. Pleasant (C) Church. We count it the 
very greatest of privileges to serve for a half century in the immeasurable 
missionary program of the church. 

Last year in October a Leadership Training course was held and ap- 
proximately 150 women earned cards of accreditation. Our leaders are 
more and more becoming aware of the proper training being necessary 
to do their work well. 

Foreign Mission and Home Mission offerings increased again. It is 
good to report this progress concerning stewardship of possessions. 

More churches were represented at the State W. M. U meeting in 
Asheville in March than we have known of in past years. This indicates 
more interest in the work. The same was true of W. M. U. Week at 
Ridgecrest. The representation was good. Seven ladies of the Executive 
Board attended the overnight conference and Prayer Retreat at Fruit- 
land, September 7-8. 

An Associational Prayer Retreat was held at Walls Church, Saturday, 
September 15. This period of prayer and meditation was a wonderful 
spiritual edification. Already one Y. W. A. organization has come into 
being as a result of this meeting. 

Woman's Missionary Societies are striving harder for rating on The 
Aims for Advancement. This year 9 societies have rated Advanced (not 
all of the reports are in). So far, this is the largest number to attain 
this rating. We welcome most heartily one new W. M. S. from Harris 
Church. 

Bethel Church in Ellensboro was hostess to the Associational Y. W. A. 
during Focus Week in February. Miss Bertha Smith, retired missionary

of China and Formosa, spoke to about ninety girls and their leaders. 
After the program the ohurch entertained with a tea and fine fellowship 
was enjoyed during this social period. 

Girl's Auxiliary work is making progress. Last year on October 1 there 
ware 9 Approved, 6 Advanced and 2 Honor organizations. This year's 
report is not yet available. "Queenly Quest" was the theme for the In- 
termediate G. A. banquet in May at Forest City First Baptist Church. 
160 girls and their counselors attended. The Juinor G. A. meeting and 
picnic at Sulphur Springs Church was attended by 296 girls and coun- 
selors. 

Two new Sunbeam Bands have been organized this year. The high- 
light of Sunbeam work was the Sunbeam Day Camp for Eight year olds. 
This was held at Trinity Church with 64 children and 19 workers at- 
tending and enjoying their day of work and play together 

This year is our Diamond Anniversary in W. M. U. It is to be a year 
of prayer. We earnestly implore all church members to join us in praying 
for the mission cause. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. J. E. Cargill 

The congregation was led in the singing of the hymn, "Am I A Soldier 
of the Cross/' 

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

Rev. M. W. Stallings presented the report on Christian Literature 
which was spoken to by John Roberts, Editor of Charity and Children. 
The report was adopted as follows : 

Projected pictures are making a great impact upon life today, but 
the printed word still remains the most common and widely used news 
medium. The world is being filled with words coming from the printers' 
presses. The Christian's concern should be for greater distribution and 
reading of the printed word that relates us to Christian causes. 

The most urgent need today is a return to the Bible and read until 
our minds and hearts become conditioned with God's truth. For it 
there is no substitute, no equal. But with the Bible as a source, much 
writings of a Christian nature are available. 

A natural reaction for lovers of God's Word will be an interest in 
Christian truth in action. Here our denominational publications fill a 
glorious service. George Truett was surrounded in his home with good 
books and Baptist publications such as the "Religious Herald," "The 
Biblical Recorder," and others. Therefore, the names and actions of 
great Christian leaders became common knowledge to a growing lad. 
It is almost certain that such yielded much influence for good in his life. 

The Biblical Recorder has been a tool for progress for 130 years 
among North Carolina Baptists. It is even more so today. The same 
can be said about Charity and Children since its beginning. Every Bap- 
tist home should have these along with the Home Mission and Com- 
mission magazines. They are within reach of every home financially and 
otherwise. The doors of opportunity are open, let us move in and re- 
ceive the blessings of Christian related reading. 

Respectfully submitted 
M. W. Stalling 

Donald White led in the singing of "I Gave My Life for Thee."

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

The report on the Baptist Children's Homes was presented by Rev. 
F. M. Barnes and was adopted as follows : Miss Janice Lewis, student 
at Gardner- Webb College and a former resident of Mills Hom.es, spoke 
to the report. 

Building a better tomorrow has always been the dedicated concern of 
the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina. Today's children will 
become the adults who shape tomorrow's world. No task is more im- 
portant than helping a child, hurt by life, to grow into healthy, well- 
adjusted, responsible citizenship. 

During the past year, 848 boys and girls were served by the Baptist 
Children's Homes. In addition to those already in care, applications were 
received for the admission of 646 other children. We had space and 
money sufficient to admit 170 of these — leaving 476 for whom no room 
was available. Through an increased Thanksgiving Offering provisions 
can be made to expand our foster home program to meet the needs of 
these children. 

Increasingly, your Homes are being called upon to serve children who 
are disturbed and emotionally ill. It is hoped that a step can be taken, 
within the year, to begin to provide, on a small scale, such services at 
the North Carolina Medical Center at Chapel Hill. 

For the first time, income to the Children's Homes through the Co- 
operative Program exceeds that of the Thanksgiving Offering. This 
source of income meets one third of our operating budget and is greatly 
appreciated. At the same time, the Thanksgiving Offering continues to 
be vital to our existence, providing 30 per cent of income. We sorely 
need an increase of one hundred thousand dollars through the Thanks- 
giving Offering this year. This would enable us to provide a Christian 
home and care for an additional 125 children. 

We owe a debt of deep gratitude to our friends whose genuine con- 
cern for the welfare of our children makes this help possible — especi- 
ally our Baptist people. You have afforded hundreds of boys and girls 
opportunities and privileges which they otherwise could not have had. 

You are invited to be among the readers of Charity and Children, our 
official publication, and thus stay informed of our child care ministry 
and other denominational endeavors throughout the year. 

Respecl fully submitted, 
F. M. Barnes

Caroleen 

The Caroleen Baptist Church was organized in 1896 with 38 members. 
From the beginning it has been active in home, state and foreign mis-

association. 

The present membership is approximately 600 with Sunday School 
averaging 250 to 300. A building program has just been completed during

Sandy Run 

Sandy Run Baptist Church was established in 1772. The records state 
that members were credited with giving pence and shillings, indicating 
the use of English coins before the Declaration of Independence in 1776. 

In the beginning meetings were held in the homes of members and 
no pastor is mentioned until February 3, 1787. Brother W. M. Camp 

was the first pastor. 

In October, 1803, Brother Drewery Dobbins became pastor and served 
44 years until his death, May 19, 1847. The Drewery Dobbins monument 
was unveiled at Sandy Run, December 20, 1893. The message was de- 
livered by the Rev. A. C. Dixon of New York City. 

The Broad River Association met at Sandy Run in 1816 and Elder 
Luther Rice, a pioneer agent for the Foreign Mission Board, preached 
a missionary sermon and a public collection was taken up for the Mission 
Board. 

In 1946 Sandy Run voted to pay $1,000 yearly toward the support of 
a Foreign Missionary, Miss Frances Roberts. In 1955 they voted to 
support Miss Roberts full time. 

Sandy Run has erected five known churches, two of which were de- 
stroyed by fire. Twenty known pastors have served Sandy Run in its 
190 year history. The Rev. W. G. Camp served 20 years and was the first 
full time pastor. The present pastor is the Rev. Charles Ginn. 

Sandy Run feels honored to be the Mother Church of the Sandy Run 
Association.

Music Directors' Choir. Worship was conducted by Dr. Eugene Poston, 
President of Gardner-Webb College. 

The reports on Christian Education were presented on the Sunday 
School by V. V. Vickery. Training Union by Z. W. Jolley and on Chris- 
tian Education by Rev. Harold Wilson. Following the hymn, "O Master 
Let Me Walk With Thee," Dr. Hoyt Blackwell, President of Mars Hill 
College, spoke to these reports which were adopted as follows'. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The Associational Sunday School Organization has for its aim helping 
and strengthening the local Sunday Schools. The best way to do this is 
through regular monthly associational meetings and for the Sunday 
Schools to invite the Associational Sunday School workers to help them 
with their problems and to make suggestions.

This -past year we' had three fifth Sunday afternoon meetings. They 
were 'meetings combined with the Brotherhood and Training Union. 
These being combination meetings and being so infrequent were not too 
effective. 

East year we set some goals as follows : 

500 awards in category 17, but through June only nine churches had 
attained 262 awards. 

50 churches observing January Bible Study Week, but only 28 observed 
the week, the same number as last year. 

10% enrolment increase, but we made an increase of only 166. 

A goal of 64 Vacation Bible Schools, but there were only 60. 

20 churches holding Preparation Week, but only 8 observed this week, 
which was less than last year. 

A goal of 10 Standard Sunday Schools, but we have no report of any. 

We hope this organization will move forward in a greater way this 
new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
V. V. Vickery 

REPORT ON TRAINING UNION 

This has been a good year in Training Union work. The theme, 
"lengthen and Strengthen" was followed for the year. 

"M" Night was held at the Spencer Baptist Church, with 25 pastors, 
30 Training Union directors and 35 churches with a total of 595 present.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

All seven of our Baptist colleges opened last fall with their largest 
enrolments: Campbell — 1,429; Chowan — 752; Gardner- Webb — 611; 

31 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Mars Hill - 1,099; Meredith — 778; Wingate — 912; Wake Forest — 
2,866; making a total of 8,447. Approximately Y$ were members of Baptist 
churches. About a thousand of these are preparing for special Christian 
service. In addition to these, hundreds of laymen and laywomen are 
being prepared for their chosen vocation, giving their Christian witness 
in every walk of life. 

The total operating budget of the colleges during the year was about 
$12,000,000. Of this amount, the Cooperative Program paid about 5!%. 
Nearly one-half of the operating costs are paid by students and other 
sources. In the light of spiraling costs and expanded student bodies, the 
colleges face very crucial financial needs in the future. In order to meet 
the needs of our colleges, it will be necessary for more churches to in- 
crease their Cooperative Program giving by 35%. 

The colleges are deliberately and continually seeking to illuminate the 
total educational process with the atmosphere of the Christian faith. 
In addition to Christ-oriented teaching, opportunities are provided daily 
and weekly worship. On each campus is a qualified director of religious 
activities whose responsibility is to counsel with students and faculty, 
as well as to correlate and promote a program of voluntary religious 
activities designed for spiritual growth. 

The future of Christian education is at stake today. With increased 
state and federal interest in an aid to higher education, more and more 
students will attend state institutions. Our taxes will grow corres- 
pondingly higher. These state colleges by their very nature cannot per- 
form the task of Christian education. 

Into this expanding sea of secular education, Baptists must give wit- 
ness to our faith. L,et us not oppose other forces operating in the field 
of higher education, but rather undergird and strengthen our own in- 
stitutions that they may do their work and do it well. 

You can support your colleges by: 

(1) Acquainting yourself with your colleges. Visit them, read about 
them, invite the students and faculty into your church to conduct ser- 
viqes. 

(2) Encouraging your finest students to attend. Be sure that they 
apply early. 

(3) Praying for the schools — the presidents, administration, faculty, 
trustees, and students. 

(4) Increasing your Cooperative Program giving 33% this year. 

(5) Observing the Christian Education Day, Father's Day — in June.

We are glad to report some very worthwhile activities. On Monday 
night, December 18, at 7 o'clock we held a successful Associational 
Christmas Carol Sing on the Town Square of Forest City with near 250 
in attendance. 

The Regional Choir Festival last March was held at the First Church, 
Forest City, with several choirs of our churches participating and doing 
their churches and our Association credit, all qualifying to participate

meetings of the other organizations, especially Sunday School and 
Training Union meetings. Wie want to mention especially the singing 
at "M" Night and the Associational Evangelistic Conference.

REPORT ON ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS 

The following report on Associational Missions was presented by 
W. V. Carroll. The report was adopted. 

It is difficult to report on all the things in Associational Missions. 
Some of the things are in the realm of feelings, spirit, and attitudes 
which have been about the finest the past year that the missionary has 
experienced. The hearty welcome he receives as he visits the churches 
is often heart warming. For this he is indeed grateful. 

The missionary has been fairly active during the year. He has visited 
in 150 services ; delivered 44 sermons and addresses ; taught 27 Sunday 
School classes; presented pictures 35 times; conducted 5 morning de- 
votions and 5 vesper services ; held 191 individual and committee con- 
ferences and numerous telephone conferences ; conducted two Asso- 
ciational Vacation Bible School Clinics and helped in one Vacation 
Bible School and the Associational R. A. Camp at Gardner-Webb; at- 
tended 46 associational meetings and 21 meetings and conventions out- 
side the Association, including Associational Missionaries' Week at Mars 
Hill College and most of Home Missions Week and most of one Sunday 
vSchool Week at Ridgecrest ; helped in a week's School of Missions; 
published 11 issues of bulletins and mailed 7,813 copies and 5,765 letters 
and cards were mailed from the office; traveled 8,558 miles. 

Miss Martha Jean McFarland, our most efficient associational clerk- 
secretary, has done a wonderful work this }'ear. She has done the cutting 
of most of the stencils and just about all the mimeograph work. She 
has mimeographed two or three churches' bulletins every week during 
the year, and she cut the stencils and did iust about all the preparing 
of the "ADVANCE REPORTS" booklets (about 700 of them). We are 
greatly indebted to her.

REPORT ON MINISTER'S RETIREMENT 

Rev. John Allen presented the report on Minister's Retirement which 
was spoken to by Rev. Guy Cain, Secretary of Retirement Plans. The 
report was adopted as follows : 

A total of $2,879,816 was paid in benefits by the Annuity Board in 1961. 
More than $2,654,222 of this went to around 4,500 ministers, denomi- 
national workers and their families who participated in one of the Board's 
retirement plans. The remaining amount was paid in relief benefits to 
826 aged ministers and widows. During the Board's 43 years of operation, 
it has paid out benefits totaling more than $37,304,916. 

Total membership in all plans of the Annuity Board was 23,214 on 
January 1, 1962. In 1961, 1,808 new members were enlisted in the Southern 
Baptist Protection Plan and 789 churches were enrolled. At the end of 
the year, 64% of the churches in the convention were participating in 
the Board's Program. Of this number, 43% were paying total dues for 
both church and pastor. The Institution Protection Program, for em- 
ployees in colleges, hospitals, orphanages and other institutions of this 
type, enlisted 32 institutions in 1961. 

According to the protection plan certificate, a person must join within 
a year after he begins denominational work or after his 25th birthday, 
which ever is later. Delay means reduced benefits for the family. Delayed 
penalty has been waived for those who join before January 1, 1963. 

In the 1961 report we had 30 churches and 27 ministers in our associ- 
ation participating, but we have had a loss, and figures now stand at 27 
churches and 24 ministers. We could stand an increase on this, and if 
you are going into the program, it will pay you to do so before Jan- 
uary 1, 1963. 

The Annuity Board now has 14 field men working in 21 conventions. 
Guy Cain, field representative for North Carolina, has his offices at the 
state convention headquarters, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh. Contact 
him for meetings in your church.

Carolina. It was created by the Convention for the purpose of procuring 
endowment funds and for administering said funds for all institutions 
and agencies owned and controlled by the Convention. It is independent 
of the cause it serves, but committed to its best interests. It is not a 
competitive agency, but a service agency dedicated to the task of under- 
girding all our Baptist work. 

Funds usually come to the Foundation through one of five channels : 

(a) Through a CHRISTIAN WILL. In his will a person leaves all or 
part of his estate with the Foundation for some Baptist cause. Of course, 
the Foundation then receives its share when the estate is settled. 

(b) Through a LIVING TRUST. A person makes a donation to the 
Foundation while he is living. The Foundation then administers the 
fund and directs the income to the Baptist agency of his choice. This 
allows the donor to see his gift at work. 

(c) Through a MEMORIAL TRUST. A person makes a gift to the 
Foundation in memory of a loved one and instructs the Foundation to 
place the income from it to one or more Baptist agencies. 

(d) Through a UFE INCOME TRUST. A person makes a gift to the 
Foundation and specifies a Baptist agency as beneficiary, but requests 
the income for himself as long as he lives. This permits him to receive 
the earnings to the end of his life and to know the beneficiary of his 
charity after his death. 

(e) Through LIFE INSLTRANCE. A person takes out a policy in some 
amount in the name of the Foundation and designates, the Baptist cause 
as irrevocable beneficiary.

HOMES FOR AGING REPORT 

Rev. L. N. Epley presented the report on the Homes for the Aging 
which was spoken to by Rev. Clyde Chapman, pastor of the First Bap- 
tist Church of Spencer. The report was adopted as follows : 

The past year in our North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging 
has been one of great blessing. Of unusual significance has been the 
opening of our fourth Home, the Hamilton Home, located in Eastern 
North Carolina, and enabling us to minister to 30 additional people. 
The residents there are supremely happy and arc enjoying the abundant 
life in this beautiful new facility. 

Over the past eleven years we have increased by 8 times our ability 
to minister to the aging in our midst. In the beginning-, there were 20 
residents, and now we are able to give loving care to 160 persons in our 
four Homes — Resthaven, and the Hayes Home, in Winston-Salem, 
the Albemarle Home, at Albemarle, and the Hamilton Home, at Hamilton. 

The need for more space is most urgent and pressing. Today there 
are 138 applicants on the waiting list. We will want to move forward, 
therefore, as rapidly as funds will permit in meeting the crying demands 
of our- ever-growing population of aging people who need our car t e. 

The Special Day Offerings from our churches are at an all-time high 
and are likelv to go beyond all previous offerings by the end of the 

38 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



fiscal year. We want to thank all who have had a part in these vital 
offerings, and we would urgently appeal to each church to continue 
giving as liberally as possible through this vital medium. Ninety per 
cent of the residents who live in our four Homes are financially needy 
people and are sustained by the Special Day Offerings from our churches 
each year. 

The plea of the elderly person in our midst, "Cast me not off in the 
time of old age, "is one that cannot be lightly brushed aside, but one 
that must continue to challenge the highest and holiest in every North 
Carolina Baptist as we move forward in this great ministry which God 
has committed to us. 

Respectfully submitted

The assembly was led in the singing of the hymn, "Stand Up, Stand 
Up for Jesus." 

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

Rev. Joe Bridges presented the Stewardship report which was adopted 
as follows : 

Stewardship is a reflection of our total commitment to Christ. Without 
good stewards, the work of our Lord would go wanting. In I Corinthians 
4:2 Paul says: "Moreover, it is required in a steward that a man be 
found faithful." We automatically become stewards when we give our 
lives and hearts to Christ. • 

Jesus said, "Not every one that sayeth unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter 
the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which 
is in heaven." These few words will serve as a reminder to all of us that 
to be a Christian is no small matter. 

Stewardship in our Association is an interesting study. I have gleaned 
these figures from past associational minutes. I would like to share them 
with you, so that you too might see something of the growth of our As- 
sociation in one area of our Stewardship. 

In 1959, our total receipts were $738,789 ; in 1960 our receipts were 
$818,741 ; in 1961, $824,972. Our expenditures for missions in 1959 were 
$146,537; in 1960, $254,653; in 1961, $160,582. Our gifts through the Co- 
operative Program in 1959 were $82,192; in 1960, they were $88,303 ; in 
1961, they were $90,454. In 1950, our churches paid out for all purposes 
$837,657. These figures are mere statistics, but ihey come to life when 
we realize they represent a part of the lives of our people. 

It is through Christian stewardship that God expresses himself. If we 
are poor stewards, we are poor witnesses and poor Christians. In the 
light of the needs of our day and the heart of God who gave His son, 
can we afford to do anything less than our very best ?

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

The American Bible Society Report was presented by Rev. J. J. 
Buckner and was adopted as follows : 

39 * 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Thie American Bible Society's purpose is to encourage the wider cir- 
culation of the Holy Scriptures without note or comment, and without 
purpose of profit, to every man on earth in whatever language he may 
require. 

"Sharing Christ with the whole world" is the aim and theme of the 
Baptist Jubilee Advance Program, and sharing the Bible with the whole 
world is an essential part of this Advance Program 

If the people of the world are to know Jesus the Christ, they must 
have the Bible in their own language. The Bible is a missionary itself, 
and it can go where the human missionary can not go. It can stay where 
the human missionary cannot stay, and it can keep on speaking after 
the human missionary has gone. 

During 1961, the American Bible Society has: 

1. Rejoiced that some part of the Bible has been published in 1,181 
languages ; the full Bible in 226, a Testament in 281 more and a Gospel 
or other complete book in 674. 

2. Distributed a record total of over 24 million Scripture volumes in 
over 100 countries on 6 continents. 

3. Realized anew, from sharp increase in Scripture distribution in Cuba 
and Congo, that the demand for the Bible often rises dramatically in 
areas of political tension and revolution. 

4. Continued to enlarge the worldwide ministry of the Finger-Fono 
for use in areas where many people cannot read. 

5. Given almost a million Scripture volumes for distribution by Chap- 
lains to our Armed Forces and Veterans Hospitals. 

6. Expanded its distribution of Scriptures to persons of special needs 
such as Cuban refugees; hurricane and flood victims; migrants and 
others. 

Southern Baptist support the work of the Society because the Bible 
Society serves mission work, and Southern Baptist missionaries depend 
on the Society for Scriptures they need for their people. 

In 1961 Southern Baptists gave $164,342 to the Society. Following is 
a suggested plan for contributing: Small churches, $10-$60; larger 
churches, $60-$300; and great city churches, $300-$600.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Rev. Wade Huntley presented the report on the Baptist Hospital which 
was spoken to by Dr. W. K. MicGee, Director of Denominational Rela- 
tions for the Baptist Hospital, Winston-Salem. The report was adopted 
as follows : 

The services of our Baptist Hospital are subject to heavy demands 
which grow heavier year by year. Last year the already overcrowded 
clinics of the Out-Patient Department received a new high of 83,000 visits 

40 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



from 96 counties of the state, sixteen other states, and two foreign coun- 
tries. Two-thirds of these were by our Baptist people. 

One of the most pressing needs is the enlargement of the facilities of 
the Out-Patient Etepartment. Along with this is the urgent need for a 
building to provide adequate and unified facilities for the Hospital's eight 
schools for the training of skilled nurses, technicians, and other medical 
personnel, all of whom are in short supply and are essential to good 
medical care in our local hospitals and communities. 

The new Progressive Care Center is attracting the attention of hospital 
authorities over the country. Patients have been most pleased with it. 
The trustees and administration greatly regret that the Hospital does 
not have sufficient funds to permit the admission of Service Patients to 
this fine facility. 

The Pastors' Library now contains well over 100 volumes among the 
best books in various fields of Christian thought and pastoral work. It 
can be of great value to pastors and they are invited to use it. It is located 
in the Medical School library. 

The care of Service Patients remains at the heart of the work of the 
Baptist Hospital. If a doctor is making the arrangements for a patient 
he should be told to make clear when he calls or writes if it is a Service 
or Clinic Patient. Mother's Day money cannot be used for Private Patients. 

The Mother's Day Fund is the foundation of the financial aid given 
Service Patients. The Hospital tries to help the most needy cases as much 
as possible, but the funds have not been sufficient to give as much as is 
needed in many cases. In other cases of real need it has not been able 
to give any help, except the free services of the doctors and reduced rates 
on other items, such as X-rays, which consideration is given all Service 
Patients. We must remember that the help given is limited by the Mother's 
Day gifts of our churches. 

Our gifts from 53 churches were $4,455.44. We trust all our churches 
will participate in this worthy cause in the new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wade H. Huntley 

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

The following report on State Missions, presented by Rev. Olen 
Kendrick, was adopted. 

State Missions includes no less than 17 ministries, all under the direc- 
tion of the Division of Missions. Some of these ministries are : The 
reaching of 200,000 people through the School of Missions; The 30,000 
Movement establishing 556 New Missions and Churches in the State; 
One hundred and sixty-one Missions and Churches aided through Pas- 
toral Assistance, new Church lot gifts and Church loans. 

State Missions is the oldest offering among North Carolina Baptists. 
For more than one hundred years it has been a part of North Carolina 
Baptist life. 

It is commendable that special offerings for Home and Foreign Mis- 
sions have reached several times the amount of the State Mission 
Offering in our State, but North Carolina Baptists have an obligation 
here at home which we cannot escape. 

41 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



-Despite-' the growth- of ail- denominations in- recent years, 56 per cent 
of the State's population is still 'unaffiliated -with any church. • 

The most pressing needs according to our Mission Director, Dr. E. E. 
Spivey, are: ' 

; - -• - ' -tA 

1. Expanding our ministry with some 450,000 Military-related people 
of the Eastern North Carolina area, of whom approximately 10,000 are 
Japanese. 

2. Church lot and Pastoral aid undergirding the 30,000 Movement. 

3. Help to evangelize more than one million people who are the re- 
sponsibility of Baptists. 

4. Assist in developing 1,000 of our churches in their potential for 
gr eater Christian living and giving. 

How may each member help in these worthy causes? "Let us pray 
for State Missions." Genuine concern on the part of Christians will 
lead to Prayer. Prayer will lead to Spiritual Victories. Your praying 
alone, or with your family, can be a missionary to North Carolina, which 
needs missionaries. Prayer can accomplish what offerings cannot. Offer- 
ings will accomplish little unless undergirded by prayer. Prayer will 
bless you and the causes, and the people for which you pray. 

"God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for 
you." I Samuel 12:23.

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

The report on Home Missions, which was presented by Rev. J. I. 
McMahan, was adopted as follows: 

Southern Baptist churches have given $50,000.00 to be used in Con- 
vention-wide ministry of relief for the .Latin American refugees in 
Florida — mostly from Cuba, as a part of the Annie Armstrong Home 
Mission offering. 

The goal for establishment of 30,000 missions had reached th,e halfway 
mark January 1, 1962. Missions fur language groups as a part of the 
30,000 movement will be started. 

The Brotherhood and Home Mission Board joined forces in sending 
men to pioneer areas for revivals and other witnessing in order to start 
missions. More than 500 men paid their own way. 1,500 are expected to 
respond in 1962. 600 student summer missionaries entered the 1962 
effort in this movement. 

The six Southern Baptist missionaries remained the largest United 
States mission force in Cuba. The Board allotted $265,000.00 for this 
work which is still going strong despite the harrassment by the gov- 
ernment. 

The Home Mission budget for 1961 was $4,425,000.00. The Cooperative 
Program receipts did not reach budget expectations, and the Board was 
not able to continue its "Big Cities" ministry, which had allotted $100,- 
000.00 each for church and mission sites in one of the nation's big cities.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

Rev. M. C. Swicegood presented the report on Foreign Missions, which 
was adopted as follows: 

The rapid growth in worldwide population and the multiplying needs 
confronting mankind in this decade require a more fervent endeavor 
in mission advance than ever before. 

The year just closing finds us with almost 1,600 missionaries under 
appointment for service in 47 different countries. Within the 117 years 
of the history of the Foreign Mission Board there have been approxi- 
mately 2,850 missionaries appointed. More than half of this entire num- 
ber are serving today in active service. There is another 183 emeritus 
missionaries who by their prayers and testimony reinforce the world 
task. , _ j ;ji , 

Within the scope of Foreign Missions a wide array of ministries are 
projected. Major emphasis, however, is placed on evangelsim and church 
development. The objective of mission work is to bring people to per- 
sonal faith in Christ and obedience to Him as Lord. 

Each year the need for larger financial resources grows as an enlarging 
missionary effort presents inescapable needs. Therefore, the dedication 
of life must be matched with financial support. Our offerings will con- 
tinue to provide growing resources as people respond to the call of God 
to give their lives in service throughout the w r orld. 

We not only urge our churches to increase their gifts through the 
Cooperative Program enabling our Foreign Mission Board to expand 
its services, but we plead with our churches to re-emphasize the Lottie 
Moon Christmas offering because this is the one offering that the entire 
amount goes to Foreign Mission work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
M. C. Swicegood 

Following the hymn, "Send the Light," the Pastors and Music Di- 
rector's Choir sang "May God Depend On You?" Dr. W. R. Grigg, 
Secretary of Department of Interracial Cooperation, delivered the mis- 
sionary message. 

The association adjourned for lunch served by the host church. 
AFTERNOON SESSION 

The afternoon session opened with music meditation by James Hall, 
after which, the Gardner- Webb College Choir, under the direction of 
Mrs. Robert Gidney, sang "Bless the Lord, O My Soul," "Create In Me 
A Clean Heart, O God," and "ho, A Voice To Heaven Sounding." 

Worship was conducted by Rev. Jim Jones.

TEMPERANCE AND PUBLIC MORALS REPORT 

The report on Temperance and Public Morals, spoken to by Dr. D. P. 
McFarland, Secretary, Christian Action League, was adopted as follows : 

Temperance and Public Morals is a definite concern of every Christian 
in this sinful world today. As we think about the low public morals of 
this day and age, surely we are accepting the challenge, which falls into 
our very laps, of praying for the people who have fallen into the ways 
of the devil. People who are disobedient to the Gospel of Christ, but 
yet they go on continually in the ways of wickedness separating them- 
selves from the love of God. 

There are approximately 68,000,000 American adults who drink alcoholic 
beverages to some degree. Think of the children and other innocent 
people who have to put up with these people in one way or another. No 
wonder our public moral standards are so low with this large number 
of people partaking of alcoholic beverages. 

Alcohol is the cause of homes being broken up and children going 
hungry. 

Crime is raging on every hand and the statistics prove that the biggest 
blame can be laid on alcoholic beverages. 

Our highways are crowded today with people who are driving under 
the influence of alcohol. This causes many thousands of people to be 
killed and injured on our highways. 

It has been argued that we cannot do without the tax money that is 
collected from the sale of alcoholic beverages, but when we add up the 
cost of accidents, broken homes, and the upkeep of institutions, the tax 
money doesn't compare with these figures. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Guy E. Hutchins

IN MEMORIAM 

An impressive Memorial Service was conducted by Rev. Harvey 
Laughter. Following the hymn, "Safe In the Arms of Jesus," sung by 
Malone Thomason, the names of the beloved dead were called. (Names 
on page 50). 

Rev. C. C. Crow led in the memorial prayer. 

The report of the Nominating Committee, which was adopted and is 
included in the Assooational Directory of these minutes, was given by 
Rev. Guy Johnson. 

The assemblv was led in the singing of the hymn, "Rescue the 
Perishing." 

EVANGELISM REPORT 

Rev. John Lucas presented the report on Evangelism which was spoken 
to by Dr. Frank K. Means, Secretary of Baptist Foreign Mission Board 
Latin American Work. The report was adopted as follows: 

Someone has said, "Two things make our age unique. It is the age 
of total revolution, and it is the age of terrible urgency." 

If it is a total revolution, then it means it will sweep the entire world 
in its onslaught. This certainly provokes a terrible urgency. This is 
not another crisis. This is a total revolutoin, and it can only be met 
with any degree of success with total dedication, on our part, to our 
Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

The past is behind us and the future is before us. What can we do 
in a practical way to meet this present threat? Evangelism offers us a 
commendable contribution through our local church, our association, 
and our Convention. 

Important meetings and programs: 

Our associational clinic on evangelism will be licld Monday, November 
26, 1962 at the First Baptist Church, Forest City. All pastors and associ- 
ational officers should attend, alone: with the teachers and officers of 
all church organizations. 

Soul-Winning Commitment Day, January 6, 1963. 

In January, it will be worthwhile to start your three months of culti- 
vative witnessing, training our people to witness for Christ in prepara- 
tion for our Baptist Jubilee Revivals in March and April. 

February 11-13, 1963, State-wide Evangelistic Conference, Greensboro. 
Every church would do well to consider sending its pastor to this spirit- 
ually refreshing conference. Lay people should attend too. 

February is transfer Church Membership Month. The non-resident 
church membership problem should have special attention at this time 
to be followed with perennial efforts. 

March and April — Baptist Jubilee Revival Crusades The date for 
the Baptist Jubilee Revival in our association is March 17-31. 1963. 

July 2-4, 1963 Convention-wide Evangelistic Conference, Dallas, Texas. 

48 



Minutes of Sandy Run Baptist Association 



March and April, 1964 World-wide Baptist Jubilee Revival. The date 
for our association is March 8-22, 1964. 

Recommendations : 

1. That our association pledge its whole-hearted support to the Chair- 
man of Evangelism and his committee for the coming year. 

2. That each church be encouraged to participate in the Baptist Jubilee 
Revival for 1963. 

3. That each church be encouraged to use the Revival Plan Book in 
making preparation for the Jubilee Revival. 

4. That our association send the Chairman of Evangelism to Ridge- 
crest for the annual conference on evangelism during Home Mission 
Week. 

All things point up the need for full committal to Christ in His re- 
demptive purpose NOW — Nothing less than this will be enough. In 
fact, nothing less than this has ever been enough. 

R espectfully submitted, 
John W. Eucas 

After the hymn, "Close to Thee," the Seventy-Third Annual Session 
adjourned with prayer led by Rev. John W. Eucas. 

There were 455 messengers and visitors registered on the second day.

Constitution 

Article I — Name 

This body shall be known as the Sandy Run Baptist Association. 
Article II — Membership 

Sec. 1. The Association shall be composed of Baptist Churches of 
Rutherford County, Cleveland County and Polk County which are now 
members, and any other Baptist churches which may hereafter be ad- 
mitted as provided. 

Sec. 2. Each church shall be entitled to be represented by her pastor 
and two representatives. Any church with more than fifty members shall 
be entitled to a messenger for each additional fifty members or fraction 
thereof. 

Sec. 3. N,ew churches may be admitted by a majority vote of mes- 
sengers present after careful examination and found to be regular in 
their organization, orthodox in their doctrine, and supporting objects 
of the Association, State, and Southern Baptist Conventions. Churches 
are to be accepted under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year in order that the above may be determined. 

Sec. 4. The Association may at any time dissolve connection with 
any church that becomes heterodox in doctrine or disorderly in practice, 
or that fails to represent itself either by messenger or letter for two 
consecutive sessions without sufficient reason, or that ceases to be mis- 
sionary in practice. The support of the causes fostered by the dienomi- 
nation at large and of this Association in particular shall be the test of 
each church as a missionary body. 

Sec. 5. Any church may withdraw from the Association at its pleasure. 

Sec. 6. In case of internal dissention in a church and two parties 
coming up to the Association, each claiming to represent the church ; 
neither party shall be seated as messengers until the question is decided 
as to which party is the church in union with the Association. The 
decision is to be made by a majority of messengers present. 

Article III — Objects 

The objects of the Association shall be to devise and promote measures 
for increasing the harmony, intelligence, and spiritual power of the 
churches and to direct, promote, and develop their energies in advancing 
the Redeemer's Kingdom throughout the earth, more especially along 
the lines recommended and adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention, 
the State Baptist Convention, and the Association itself. 

Article IV — Meetings 

Sec. 1. The Association shall meet in annual session on Tuesday and 
Wednesday after the third Sunday in October of each year. The Mod- 
erator shall call the body to meet in extra session if necessity shall arise. 

Sec. 2. The Associational year shall begin October 1 of each year and 
close September 30 of the following year.

LOCATION OF NEW CHURCHES AND MISSIONS REPORT 

In the absence of J. I. McAIahan, chairman of the Committee on the 
Location of New Churches and Missions, the following report was pre- 
sented by W. V. Carrol! and was adopted. 

Our association as a whole is well churched, and the Committee on 
Location of New Churches and Missions doesn't have much of a report. 
However, there has been a survey made in east Spindale in conjunction 
with the Green River Association with the view of starting new work 
if the survey shows a need. As this report is written, no decision has 
been made. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. I. McMahan 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

After the adoption of the following report on Woman's Missionary 
Union, an impressive presentation was given showing some of the high- 
lights of the Aniversary Year. 

"Finis" can almost be written to the chapter entitled, "The Diamond 
Aniversary," in Woman's Missionary Union Book. Truly much has 
been written in this cherished chapter, and it will most surely be revered 
by members of future years. 

Woman's Missionary Union of Sandy Run Association has certainly 
engaged in the retrospect phase of the Anniversary Year. We have paid 
tribute to our heritage, honored our early pioneer women by studying 
and protraying them. In January we had a special anniversary meeting 
using as our theme, "Diamonds for the King." Rev. Mike Lopez, mis- 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



sionary to the Spanish-speaking people in Santa Fe, New Mexico, came 
and spoke to us at that time. 

Our members have been anxious to receive training to better perform 
their tasks. They have attended conferences at Ridgecrest and Fruitland. 
Sunbeam, G.A. and Y.W.A. leaders participated in a Leadership Training 
Program last October. In the G.A. group 44 cards of accreditation were 
earned. 

This year has also been the Fiftieth Aniversary of our G.A. Several 
activities have been engaged in to celebrate their Jubilee. On February 7 
an Anniversary Banquet was held and 371 girls and leaders from 20 
churches attended. Miss Arvine Bell of Camp Crestridge, Ridgecrest was 
the speaker. In June 39 girls and their chaperones attended the first 
G.A. Southwide Convention in Memphis, Tennessee. A Junior GA. Camp 
was held at Gardner-Webb College July 29- August 2. 80 girls, 11 coun- 
selors and 5 other helpers totaled 96 attending this camp. 

Monday evening, February 8, the Cliffside Y.W.A. group was hostess 
to the other Y.W.A.'s in the association at a Valentine Tea. 165 girls 
and their leaders enjoyed the wonderful occasion. Miss Sara Ann Hobbs, 
State Y.W.A. Director, was the distinguished guest and speaker at this 
affair. Twenty-one Y.W.A. girls attended World Missions Week at Cas- 
well the first week in July. 

Saturday, September 28, a small group of our ladies and three gentle- 
men gathered at Holly Springs for a two hour Prayer Retreat. Believing 
that God hears and answers prayers, we face the Jubilee year with pros- 
pects for a progressive year and one which will honor and glorify God. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. J. E. Cargill 

The congregation was led in the singing of the hymn, "Wonderful 
Words of Life." 

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

*The following report on Christian Literature was presented by Rev. 
Marion Rector and was spoken to by Rev. Max Linens, pastor of the 
Boiling Springs Baptist Church, Boiling Springs, N. C. The report was 
adopted. 

No thinking man would deny the power of the printed page in the 
world of today. In spite of the popularity of radio and television we have 
more to read and are reading more than in any other period in history. 
With so much reading material available it becomes imperative that 
God's people be discriminating in what they read. Much bad is offered 
with the good. 

One has well stated that "not since Manhatten Island was sold by the 
Indians for $24.00 has so much dirt been available so cheap as on our 
newsstands today." No doubt some of that dirt is making its way into the 
homes of Baptists. Such should never be the case. The writer of Proverbs 
reminds us concerning man that "as lie thinketh in his heart, so is he." 
Therefore, we would do well to carefully select that which we feed our 
minds. 

One of the purposes of our State Convention, as stated in its consti- 
tution, is to distribute sound Christian literature. Since 1833 one means 
of carrying out that purpose has been the Biblical Recorder. This weekly 

20 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



paper faithfully publishes news concerning the work of North Carolina 
Baptists, their ministry at home and around the world. It is important 
that we be informed properly and accurately. When people know the 
needs, they respond. The Recorder can be received into the homes of all 
our churches for only 4$ per week per family. 

For better than 76 years another publication of merit has been available 
to North Carolina Baptists. Charity and Children is printed on the 
campus of Mills Home in Thomasville and is closely identified with the 
child care ministry. However, attention is given to the full scope of 
news among Baptists in the state. Charity and Children costs sixty 
cents a year if sent to the church in bundle form. Individual subscriptions, 
sent weekly to each address, are $1.00 a year. 

There are many splendid magazines and papers published by the 
various Boards and Departments of the Southern Baptist Convention 
that should enter each Baptist home along with our own Biblical Re- 
corder and Charity and Children. 

To paraphrase an earlier quote, "not since the beginning of the Bap- 
tist witness in America has so much good literature been available for 
such a small investment." Let's read it ! 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. Marion Rector 

Malone Thomason led in the singing of "Banner of the Cross." 
BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Rev. Harold DeLozier presented the report on the Baptist Children's 
Homes which was adopted as follows. The report was spoken to by 
Lloyd Pendergraft, Associate Editor of Charity and Children. 

During the past year over 900 boys and girls received care through 
the Baptist Children's Homes. Many others have found other sources 
of care through efforts of the social service staff. More children were 
served by the Baptist Children's Homes last year than ever before in 
history. 

Now completing the 78th year, the Baptist Children's Homes have 
given a loving home and Christian care to well over 8,000 children who 
early in life experienced the tragedy of loss of home and loved ones. 

The Children's Homes include three institutions. Mills Home, Thomas- 
ville, founded by John H. Mills in 1885 as the Thomasville Baptist Or- 
phanage, is the largest and is headquarters for the program. 

The Home in Thomasville also includes a farm of 800 acres with a 
grade "A" dairy, Charity and Children print shop, the self supporting

Brief histories of the host churches were prepared by the Historian. 

Florence 

On Sunday afternoon, April 9, 1922, a group of thirty-three Christian 
men and women, with zeal and vision, met at what was then known as 
the Welfare Building of the Florence Mill and organized the Florence 
Baptist Church. Rev. C. C. Matheny, whose love for the church and God's 
kingdom, was the guiding personality behind the movement, and he was 
called as the new church's first pastor. 

Eventually the church felt that it was necessary to seek its own place 
of worship. The first house of worship was erected just south west of 
the Florence Mill on what is now called Powell Street. This was a framed 
structure which was soon expanded in order to meet the growing needs 
of the progressive church. 

The Florence Church has been served by the following faithful and 
dedicated pastors: Rev. C. C. Matheny (1922-26); Rev. Z. D. Harrill 
(1927-28); Rev. E. N. Epley (1929-39) ; Rev. E. W. Bailes (1940-43) ; Rev. 
C. C. Matheny, for a second pastorate with Rev. Wilson W. Padgett as 
Associate Pastor (1944-45); Rev. Fred Dabnev (1946-53); Rev. Fred A. 
Mauney (1953-60); and Rev. T. W. Estes (1961--). 

The Florence Church grew with such rapidity that eventually more 
space was needed. To meet this growing need a new location was secured 
at the corner of South Broadway and Florence Streets. Here the present 
new and beautiful edifice was erected. The congregation entered this 
new building on Sunday, June 15, 1941 for the first service. Rev. E. W. 
Bailes led the church in the erection of this building. In April, 1947 a 
second unit of departments and Sunday School rooms was completed 
and first used in January, 1948. Another addition was entered and dedi- 
cated on April 13, 1958. 

The next forward step by the church was to provide an adequate 
church staff. A modern pastorium was erected and a home for the 
Minister of Music was purchased. The combined value of these two 
homes is more than $30,000. 

With gratitude for the growth and accomplishments of the past, and 
with a responsible consciousness of the even greater possibilities of the 
future, the church continues to move forward in service to her Lord 
and to humanity. 

Sandy Mush 

Twelve years ago God put it in the minds and hearts of the people of 
the Sandy Mush area to organize a Baptist Church, which was soon 
realized. 

During the twelve years that have passed there has been much pro- 
gress both spiritually and materially. 

The contributions have amounted to $205,088.91, an average per year 
of $17,090.74. 733 people have united with the Church. The present mem- 
bership is 579. 

With the population of the community on the increase, the church's 
membership surely will grow. During the past year there were 55 
additions. 

For all God's blessings upon the Sandy Mush Baptist Church, let us 
give humble thanks and continue as an Association to pray for them.

conducted by William A. Stroud. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Sam Jenkins presented the report on the Sunday School which was 
adopted as follows : 

The Associational Sunday School organization is designed to help 
and strengthen the local Sunday school. We have tried to do this through 
regular monthly associational meetings and individual associational 
workers helping in the local churches. 

All of the monthly meetings have been well attended. Many workers 
from churches throughout the association have been helped through the 
conference periods offered in these meetings. Action Night was the 

30 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



highlight of these meetings. Rev. A. Douglas Aldrich of Gastonia pre- 
sented a message "Outreach for the Unreached" that stirred and chal- 
lenged the hearts of every one present. 

Good reports have come in of good Vacation Bible Schools in most all 
of the churches in the association. 

Next year we plan to hold only one associational Sunday School meet- 
ing per quarter. It is hoped that the local churches will ask for the help 
of the Associational workers in whatever way they can serve best. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sam Jenkins

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

The report on the Brotherhood, which was adopted as follows, was 
presented by Hugh McBrayer. 

The Brotherhood: began in 1907 as the Layman's Missionary Movement 
with the purposes of bringing men face to face with their religious obli- 
gations, to enlist them in the affairs of Christ's kingdom, and to stimulate 
rhem to a greater consecration to God in worldwide evangelism. "It 
urged men to pray daily, study diligently, plan wisely, serve zealously, 
and give generously that the kingdom of Christ might prosper . . ." 

The program of the Brotherhood in North Carolina is designed to 
develop a strong missionary movement of Baptist laymen. A definite 

31 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



program of missionary education for men and boys is underway Some 
of the Brotherhoods and R.A.'s are already engaged in the enlistment 
of men and boys who are on the church roll to witness to the lost, to 
give of their time, talent, and possessions through the church. Some 
Brotherhoods are working with the migrant farm laborers, men in 
prison, and men on probation. A few Brotherhoods are serving the deaf 
by seeing that the church provides a Sunday School class and worship 
opportunities for them. 

Last year, several laymen from our State shared their witness on the 
missionary fields of Ohio, and J. David Taylor, president of the State 
Brotherhood Conference, participated in the New Life Movement in 
the Philippine Islands and in Japan. Next July laymen from our State 
will have opportunity to participate in Baptist Missions in North Dakota, 
Washington, Oregon, and California. So our laymen are slowly becoming 
informed about missions, some by actual experience. 

In North Carolina, 1,450 Brotherhoods, with an enrollment of 35,000, 
and 2,000 R.A. Chapters, with an enrollment of 25,000, provide a vast 
reservoir of strength to be used for world evangelization. However, 
there are still about 200,000 men and an equal number of boys in the 
churches in our State who are not enlisted. This is a tragic fact and a 
tragic waste of manpower. 

We are glad to report some very worthwhile activities in the Brother- 
hood work in our association. 

The RA's under the leadership of our associational leader, Rev. Guy 
Johnson, have had a fine year. On last November 10 a R.A. Conclave 
was held at Forest City. That afternoon the boys met at the Elementary 
vSchool Ball Park and were guided in age group playing under the direc- 
tion of "Smoky" Burgess. This activity was followed with a "hot dog" 
supper in the school cafeteria,. At the close of the meal, "Tuck" Mc- 
Connell, noted ball player and Chrisitan leader, spoke. 

Our associational RA Camp was held at the South Mountain Baptist 
Camp (Region VIII Camp) on July 29 through August 1 with 144 boys 
and 13 counselors from our association in attendance. There were 36 
rededications, 13 professions of faith, and two felt called into special 
Christian service. 

The Associational Brotherhood held three very fine meetings the past 
year. The first one was at the Sandy Mush Church on the evening of 
March 11 with about 125 men in attendance, It was designed to promote 
the simultaneous revivals, being a fine testimonial meeting climaxed by 
a short message by Rev. Don Hill. 

The second meeting was; at the Adaville Church on April 19 just before 
World Missions Week. A fine message was delivered by Rev. John Lucas, 
promoting this week. 

The third meeting was held with the Concord Church on September 9. 
The theme was stewardship. Some films on the subject were shown 
winch was followed by some discussion. 

The Associational Brotherhood sent lay speakers by request into 
eleven churches during the year. One Brotherhood and two RA Chapters 
were organized.

H. S. Stroupe, Professor of History, Wake Forest College, spoke 
briefly concerning the Wake Forest Trustee Proposal. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

Rev. Elwood Orr presented! the report on Christian Education, which 
was adopted as follows : 

The very nature of the Christian religion is expressed in the example 
of our L,ord. He increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God 
and man. As Christians we are privileged and; obligated to whatever is 
necessary to lead our people to share the same experiences of growth. 

Our Sunday Schools, Training Unions, Woman's Missionary Unions 
and Brotherhoods are expressions of this conviction. Clinics, study 
courses and workshops are efforts in the same direction. 

Our Christian colleges are evidence of our awareness that we as indi- 
vidual churches are not prepared to equip a person for the fullest life 
of service. In establishing these institutions of higher learning we are 
extending our efforts and pooling our resources to develop Christian 
leadership for our world. Apart from this function does the Christian 
church have any responsibility in the field of education? 

North Carolina's seven colleges for generations have been supplying 
needed Christian leadership. Ljke the product of our churches, our col- 
leges may fluctuate in direction, purpose and sense of mission. But 
through every crisis and every opportunity for growth in service, we 
should prayerfully support the administration and faculty of each school. 

This year we salute Mars Hill College as it becomes a four year- 
degree-granting institution after a long and commendable history as 
a junior college. Now it shares to an even greater degree the needs of 
the other senior -colleges in developing and retaining a faculty that will 
help it maintain its high standard. 

What can you do to help your colleges become better ones ? 

1. Pray for them and their administrators by name. 

2. Eearn all you can about each of them. 

3. Direct the most promising students to them. 

4. Help others become interested in them, pointing out to those who 
can, how they can wisely invest in the future of Christian America 
through them. 

5. Offer assistance (through one of the colleges) in making wills in 
their favor. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Elwood Orr 

The Gardner- Webb College Choir, under the direction of Mrs. Robert 
Gidney, sang "Bless the Eord, O My Soul," "Create in Me A Clean 
Heart, O God," "Think On These Things," "Send Forth Thy Spirit," 
and "God of Grace, GodJ of Glory." After which, Dr. Eugene Poston, 
President of Gardner-Webb College, spoke.

ORDINATIONS REPORT 

In the absence of Rev. Hulin Roberts, the report on ordinations was 
presented by W. V. Carroll and was adopted as follows : 

Paul says, Preach the Word, (il Tim. 4:2). Jesus commands that we 
go into all the world preaching the gospel, and Paul says, Woe is unto 
me, if I preach not the gospel. (I Cor. 9:16) 

There is no substitute for preaching. And yet there are far too few 
of our young men surrendering to the gospei ministry. May God help 
us preachers preach the Word. 

The following have been reported as having been ordained in our 
churches this year. Broad River — Carlton Cash; Faith — W. E. Eynch ; 
Harmon Street — Ray Deviney; Race Path — Sam Mintz ; Shiloh —

REPORT ON RETIREMENT PLANS 

Rev. Charles McDaniel presented the report on Retirement Plans 
which was spoken to by Guy Cain, Secretary of Retirement Plans. The 
report was adopted. 

More than 41 million dollars have been paid in relief and annuity 
benefits by the Annuity Board since its beginning in 1918. Bast year 
these benefits totaled mere than 3 million dollars and were paid to more 
than 4,500 ministers, denominational workers or their families, who were 
members of a retirement plan, and to approximately 750 on relief rolls. 

As of April 1, 1963, there were 15,904, or 49% of the total churches in 
the Southern Baptist Convention participating in the Annuity Boards 
retirement program for their pastors. Out of a total of 212 educational 
institutions, hospitals, children's homes and homes for the aged, 121 are 
enrolled in Annuity Board retirement plan with their employees. Total 
membership in the Board's retirement plan is approximately 25,000. 

A special death benefit has been added to Southern Baptist protection 
plan, it covers both natural and accidental death. If a member dies of 
natural causes before the age of 40, the benefit provides a cash settle- 
ment to the member's widow or estate equal to the average salary on 
which dues were paid. If death is due to an accident, cash settlement 

34 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



will be double the average salary. There is no added cost for this special 
death benefit, which is in addition to the regular retirement, widow and 
disability benefits of the protection plan. 

I^ast year in our association we had 27 churches and 24 ministers par- 
ticipating. This year we have 29 churches participating. 

The Annuity Board's field representative for North Carolina is Guy 
Cain, 301 Hillsboro St., Raleigh. He promotes the Boards, the retirement 
plans, trying to enlist pastors, churches and denominational employees 
who are not enrolled in the program. He is available to speak to a group 
in the church or association or for personal conferences about any phase 
of the Annuity Board's work.

HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

Rev. M. W. Stallings presented the report on Homes for the Aging, 
which was spoken to by Mrs. Gretchen Bowles, a resident of Hayes 
Flome for the Aging. The report was adopted as follows : 

God has blessed the ministry of our Homes for the Aging during the 
twelve years of operation. The past year has been filled with His goodness. 

The Homes in Winston- Salem, Albemarle, and Hamilton now serve 
160 residents. Yet, there are 160 more people waiting for admission. 
Homes such as Baptist Homes for the Aging are the only hope for a 
home in this world for many wonderful aging people. It will bless the 
heart of any person to visit tiie homes and see for themselves the radiant 
joy that this ministry is bringing to the residents. 

The average age among the residents is 80, the youngest being 65 and 
the oldest 102, Each resident, in an atmosphere that is Christian, is sur- 
rounded by love, peace, and security. Each resident is assured of receiving 
tender loving care in sickness as well as in health. The residents testify 
of the blessings that come to them from the ties that exist between the 
homes and the Baptist people of North Carolina. 

Baptists of North Carolina give financial support through two media. 
All churches are urged to make a special offering on the third Sunday 

35 



_ Minutes of the Sandy Ru n Baptist Association 

in February. The homes also receive 1.3 per cent of Cooperative Program 
funds, this being only $7.92 out oi every $1,000.00 It is necessary that 
our special offerings be generous since the greater support comes by this 
means. Baptists are rendering a good ministry in this field of care for 
the aging, and are hoping to move forward in this area of concern for 
these people who have served in their day. 

Respectfully submitted, 
M. W. Stallings 

The congregation was led in the singing of the hymn, "Count Your 
Blessings." 

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

The Stewardship Report, which was adopted as follows, was presented 
by Rev. Cecil Cothran. 

Stewardship is every Christian's privilege. Many claim their love for 
God and His work but do not follow through in dedication. There is 
altogether too little response to the consecrated dollar ministry but far 
too few commit themselves in other areas of life. Yet, it is in the steward- 
ship of the whole of life that abundant living comes. The richer and 
fuller life is available, but it is realized only when His plan and purpose 
is worked out in every department of our lives. 

There has been a growing need for Christian Stewardship Development 
throughout our denomination, and especially in our smaller Southern 
Baptist churches, i am convinced that our need is meet in the "Growth 
in Christian Stewardship" plan, made accessible by the Southern Baptist 
Stewardship Service, 127 Ninth Avenue, North, Nashville, Tennessee. 
This plan is designed to do two things : 1. Teach the meaning of Christian 
Stewardship and, 2. Encourage expression of Christian Stewardship. 

The total receipts for this associationial year were $927,085. Sandy Run's 
constituency now totals i.9,92,9. When our total dollars are figured in 
terms of average contributions per annum, only $46.51 per person is given 
for all causes or phases of the work in our Lord's Kingdom. This re- 
veals the urgent need for stressing Stewardship, for jesus said, "where 
your treasure is, there will your heart be also." 

Today Christian Stewardship in a material world should reflect a total 
life interest which must be centered in Christ and His redeeming love. 
Stewardship is never law's maximum but love's minimum. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Cecil W. Cothran 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

The report on the American Bible Society was presented by Rev. 
Fred Bryant and was adopted as follows: 

in 1962 important advances in Christian world missions were made 
by your American Bible Society. With the distribution of 31,523,455 
volumes of scripture in 1962, scripture distribution rose to a new record. 

Missions and churches abroad called upon the Bible Society for an 
increase of 48.3% in the number of Scripture volumes, a total of 17,032,704 

36 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



copies in more than 100 countries in over 300 languages. The largest 
demands came from the rapid growing evangelical churches in Latin 
America, where the societ} 7 circulated 10,666,710 Scripture volumes, a 
growth of 4,289,975 copies of the previous year. 

Similar larger demands are coming from Asia and Africa. More than 
10,000,000 volumes of Scripture rose 66% in 1962. Some parts of the 
Bible have now been translated into 401 African languages. There has 
been a large increase in society publications, including Bible, New Testa- 
ment Gospel portions and Scripture selections for distribution overseas. 

The Bible Society is busy at home. In our country one of every nine 
is a language person who does not know Christ as Saviour. One of each 
of the remaining eight is destitute or institutionalized!, two of the re- 
maining seven, profess no connection with any church. 

The Society distributed more than 14,000,000 copies of the Scriptures 
in the United States in 1962 through institutions and missions. 

The Bible Society provided the Armed Forces with 970,723 volumes 
of scripture free. 

The Society made available to the blind 56,655 Braille volumes, and 
talking book records in more than 40 language systems. 

The Society has translated and published some part of the Bible in 
1,202 languages and dialects. 

The churches contributed $1,191,233.11 of the ?M billion spent by the 
Society, for this great work. We urge you to pray for and support this 
great work of spreading the gospel in the word of God which is so 
needful

the department is producing a new series of taped Bible teaching 
programs with target date for airing in the spring of 1964. 

V. OTHER AREAS 

The department also shares in Schools of Missions. Other services 
are so many and varied that it would be impossible to list ail areas 
in which the department is now serving. It is the earnest desire of 
the department to continue these services in every possible way. 

Respectively submitted,

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

The report on the Baptist Hospital, which was spoken to by Dr. 
Benjamin Patrick, Associate Director of the Department of Pastoral 
Care, was presented by Rev. Charles Ginn. The report was adopted as 
follows : 

The opportunity of serving persons created in the image of God is a 
high and holy privilege. 

You and I have such an opportunity in multiplied thousands of people 
who are sick in body, mind and spirit, and who go to our Baptist Hospital 
seeking help. We reach out the hand of love and mercy through the 
skilled and dedicated hands of our doctors, nurses, chaplains, and many 
others involved in this ministry to the total person. We, as Baptists, 
are grateful for this opportunity of joining hands with those who give 
the miracle drug, guide the surgeon's knife, bring the message of hope, 
and do the hundreds of other tasks which are necessary in the operation 
of our great hospital. 

The number of those who receive the services of our Hospital this 
year will be greater than the population of one of our medium-size North 
Carolina cities, such as Goldsboro or Salisbury. Most of them will be 
seriously ill and referred by their family physicians because they need 
the kind of care available only in a large medical center. They will go 

,38

from all areas of our state and from all walks and circumstances of life. 
What a privilege it is to serve these friends in need and what a challenge 
to our compassion ! 

The Mother's Day Fund, which we provide by our special offerings 
or by an item in our church budgets designated for the Hospital, is the 
means through which we make it possible for those who cannot pay to 
have the care they need. The $176,000 which the Hospital receives from 
the Cooperative Program provided by our churches must go to help pay 
for buildings, purchase equipment, and support the Department of 
Pastoral Care. 

I -call attention to the Service Patient Endowment Fund of the Hos- 
pital which we may place in our wills for any amount, or contribute to 
at any time, and thus continue to be a part of this service of love through 
the years after we are gone. 

I wish to thank our churches for their share in this ministry and call 
upon them to make their support a worthy expression of their Christian 
concern.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

Rev. Olen Kendrick presented the report on the Baptist Foundation, 
which was spoken to by Rev. J. D. Hillman, pastor of the First Baptist 
Church, Rutherfordton. The report was adopted. 

Since July, 1962, the North Carolina Baptist Foundation has estab- 
lished an office in the Baptist Building with a full-time Executive Sec- 
retary and secretarial help. This is the first time in the history of the 
Foundation that it has engaged in full-time emphases. The activities of 
the Executive Secretary have been varied. One of the purposes of the 
Board of Directors has been to carry the message of the services offered 
by the Foundation to as many associations as possible; into as many 
churches as possible; and to as many individuals as he has had the op- 
portunity. 

On June 30, 1962, we reported to you that the assets of the Foundation 
amounted to $303,186.66. The assets of the Foundation as of June 30, 
1963, were $324,256.59. Since the close of business last year in June, 1962, 
the Foundation has technically in its control two estates of rather large 
size. The estate of R. Sterling Graves amount to approximately $440 000. 
The estate of T. F. Pettus is in the neighborhood of $110,000. Both of 
these estates are in the hands of the trustees of the estates and for all 
practical purposes they will be turned over to the Foundation in the 
very near future. These two estates will push our assets to over $870,000. 
Those who have relatively small amounts of money, personal property 
or other real assets, will find the Foundation is just as anxious to serve 
them as it is to serve the larger estates. It is a fundamental belief of the 
Directors of the Foundation that the Foundation exists to serve all 
Baptists. 

The Foundation Board of Directors and the Executive Secretary wish 
to express their deep appreciation to the various organizations, institu- 
tions and agencies that have assisted them with the promotion of the 
Foundation program.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 

W. V. Carroll presented the report on Associational Missions, which 
was adopted as follows : 

It is a great privilege to work with the people and churches of our 
Sandy Run Association. The cordial welcome that the associational mis- 
sionary receives in the churches is a heart warming experience. So how 
can he complain ? Yet there are some things we ought to notice. 

Our people and churches fail to see the missionary opportunities in 
our associational organizations to help others. Not all of our organiza- 
tions are manned. 

Man}/ of our churches are proned to rock along in the same old way 
instead of studying and gaining a greater vision of our Lord's work. 
However, some are moving along, but consider our training awards 
Only 22 of our 64 churches had training awards for the associational 
year through June. 

Our people and churches could cooperate a lot better in associational 
projects, and they would be enriched. Let's show the greatest cooperation 
next spring in the Jubilee Revivals and next September in our Associ- 
ational School of Missions. 

Now. we almost forget all complaints when we think about the Associ- 
ational Stewardship Development Program that we are in and that 
great Associational Leadership Supper held at the Chase High School! 
-18 of our churches were represented by 26? of our people! What a won- 
derful experience ! 

And what glowing reports are coming from the stewardship testi- 
monies of our layman teams ! It is wonderful ! 

During the year the missionary has visited in 125 services; delivered 
377 sermons and addresses; taught 30 Sunday School lessons; presented 
47 pictures; lieiped examine and ordain two preachers; helped in three 
Vacation Bible Schools; held and attended 180 individual conferences 
and committee meetings and numerous telephone conferences; con- 
ducted two VBS Clinics; attended 54 associational meetings and 21 con- 
ferences, workshops, and conventions outside the association, including 
a week at Gulfshore. Mississippi; published 10 issues of bulletins and 
nailed 7,507 copies and 1 14 151 letters and cards; and traveled 9,171 miles. 

Please express your appreciation to Miss Martha Jean McFarland for 
the fine work she is doing. She is a!so responsible for these fine copies 
of Advance Reports.

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

The report on State Missions, which was presented by Rev. J. R. 
Featherston, was adopted as follows: 

North Carolina Baptists, for the most part have done well by special 
offerings for Home and Foreign Missions — and we arc glad they have. 
It concerns us, however, that State Mission support has not kept pace 
with the expanding needs in our state. 

i ...... ; ■ 42 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



It is not necessary to list the varied ministries of State Missions, but 
supplementary information helps to pinpoint some of the areas most in 
need. For example, 127 churches in 61 associations received $91,000.00 
last year on their Pastor's salary. New ministries such as the Seminary 
Extension Centers in the western section of the state are filling vital 
need. The Military population in the state, much larger than anyone 
thinks, is served in varied ways. An estimated 400 places in the state 
need new Baptist churches and missions. Most of these struggling con- 
gregations always ask aid in purchasing lots. The fact that the Coopera- 
tive Program provides only Yz of the State Mission budget makes the 
success of this offering more urgent. 

This year's emphasis is on Evangelism and a study of the decline in 
baptisms explains why. In 1954, there were 35,705 and 35,607 in 1955. Tn 
1957 and 1958, the totals dropped to 33,798 and 34,836 respectively, but in 
1959 the totals rose to 36,600. Since that year, however, the decline has 
been more evident. In 1960, there were 30,337 baptisms and in 1961 the 
total was 32 4-85. Last year's statistics showed another low of 30,881 
w T ith more than 500 churches reporting no baptisms. In the last decade 
while these figures have fluctuated, new churches have been organized 
and the state's population has grown several hundred thousands 

Of the 3,400 Baptist churches in the state today, more than 2,000 of 
them were aided in one way or another by State Missi ms in the early 
stages of their organization and growth. These include many of our 
largest, strongest churches as well as hundreds of smaller ones in rural 
and village areas. This is how strategic and far-reaching the State Mis- 
sion ministry is today and has been for more than a century. No Baptist 
dollar has been spent more wisely than that which has gone into this 
work. 

Dr. E. E- Spivey, director of the Division of Missions, is right when 
he says that, "Sometimes we are so busy looking at the world that we 
fail to see people right here in our own state." The test of Christianity, 
he continues, is not necessarily our love for missions in foreign lands 
but our love for people here and in distant countries. 

By all means, Baptists should support Home and Foreign Missions, 
but let's not forget those who are our responsibility here in North 
Carolina. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. R. Featherston 

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

Rev. Raymond Crowe presented the report on Home Missions, which 
was adopted 1 as follows : 

The missionaries of the Home Mission Board are now serving in every 
state of the United States and in Cuba, Panama, and the Canal Zone. 
A survey is being made with regard to work in Puerto Rico, and the 
liaison ministry between Southern Baptist and Canadian Baptist is being 
continued. 

At the close of 1962 the Board had 2,078 missionaries, a gain of 117 
during the year. In addition, there were 595 students who served missions 
under the Board's direction. The percentage of workers serving in 

43 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



pioneer areas and among the neglected peop 1 ^ continues to increase. 
The total missionary force includes Administrative, Mission Pastors, 
Associational Missions, City Missions, Language Missions, National 
Baptists, and Pioneer Missions. 

The Home Mission Board received during 1962: $3,127,156.00 from the 
Cooperative Program; $2,891,184.00 from the Annie Armstrong offerings; 
and $194,408.00 from designations. Receipts from invested funds and 
rentals, exclusive of interest on church loans, amounted to $152,800.00. 

The Home Mission Board is cooperating with all of the states in sup- 
port of mission work. 

The amount provided in the 1963 budget to the work in North Caro- 
lina, which includes Associational Missions, City Missions and Mission 
Centers, Language Group Ministries, Survey and Special Studies, Work 
with National Baptists, Evangelism, and Student Ministries, totaled 
$43,560.00. 

Total appropriation through the Mission Division in 1963 budget pro- 
vides 66.5 per cent for new areas and 33 5 per cent for 16 Southern States. 

Plans have been made for the 1964 Jubilee Revivals. The Board is 
cooperating with the Brotherhood Commission in sponsoring the 1964 
West Coast Laymen's Crusade in California, Washington, and Oregon. 
It is anticipated that 1.500 laymen will participate. 

We have a challenge today. Never have Southern Baptists had a great- 
er challenge for missions in the homeland than they have today. America 
cannot give to the world something which she does not have. Material- 
ism, agnosticism, athei m, and indifference are taking a tremendous toll 
from the spiritual life of our nation. There is a great need for a spiritual 
awakening. The Home Mission Board wishes to make its total resourses 
and personnel available to our Baptist constituency in helping to stimu- 
late and inspire such an awakening.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

The Foreign M'ission report was presented by Rev. Harvey Laughter 
and was adopted as follows : 

How vast the world has grown since Jesus' day! It is estimated that 
the population of the world in the beginning of the hrst century totaled 
only 250 million pe< pie, Today there are more than 3 billion people in 
the world, rmd :\ recent report from the United Nations predicts that 
the population will double by AD 2000. The most optimistic estimate of 
the number of Christians in this vasl population would place the number 
as less than one in three. 

The growth of Christian missions is failing to keep step with the pres- 
ent population explosion. As a result, the world grows more pagan with 
every passing day. There are fever Christians today, proportionately, 
than ai the beginning of the Christian century, 

44 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Since Southern Baptists projected the Advance Program in foreign 
missions in 1948, great gains have resulted. Today, the Foreign Mission 
Board has approximated 1,800 missionaries— including missionary asso- 
ciates — under appointment to 53 countries. 

To maintain this expanded world-widie program of missionary en- 
deavor requires an expenditure of $20,000,000 annually. Such funds must 
come from two sources : The Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon 
Offering. The two sources are forever inseparable. They are the "Twin 
Streams" which make possible the foreign mission advance. 

We can show our concern for foreign missions by continued prayer, 
increased support of the Cooperative Program, and with our gifts to the 
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

The theme for 1963 has been ''Sharing Christ with the Whole World." 
The time for self-examination has come. Do we really care for the multi- 
tudes of the earth? Are we actually concerned about sharing Christ with 
them?

ASSOCIATIONAL LIBRARY ORGANIZATION REPORT 

The report on the Library Organization was presented by Mrs. Frank 
Willis and was adopted as follows : 

The Associational Church Library Organization is a renewed effort on 
the part of the Southern Baptist Convention to aid churches in the many 
technical problems involved in establishing and maintaining a successful 
church library. 

A check list of the 64 churches of the Sandy Run Association has been 
sent to me from Nashville. 

42 churches reporting no library 

1 church library reported! but no librarian reported. 

8 church libraries reported having received the Free Library Offer 
but have not received the Church Library Resource Guide ( a $4.95 
book free for the asking) to assist in classifying books. 

1 church library reported that has not received the Free Library Offer 
nor the Church Library Resource Guide. 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



On April 15 at Cliffside we had a meeting to assist churches, in seeing 
the need for a church library and helping them to meet this need. As a 
result there were three new libraries started and two reactivated. There 
were 33 people present representing nine churches. 

The New Testament church members gave much attention to reading 
the scriptures. The Reformation in Europe sprang from an emphasis 
on the necessity of every person's reading and interpreting the Bible 
for himself. Our Baptist forefathers, though often lacking in formal 
education, were great believers in Bible reading. Christ said, "Ye shall 
know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Today the search for 
truth and knowledge continues. The library service is a church's means 
of procuring materials, caring for them, encouraging their use, and 
circulating them to the people of the church.

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE REPORT 

The report on the Christian Action League, presented by Rev. Guy 
Johnson, was adopted as follows. The report was spoken to by Rev. 
W. P. Biggerstaff. , 

The world-renowned Dr. Albert Schweitzer has said, "Drink is com- 
mercially our greatest wastrel, socially our greatest criminal, and morally 
and religiously our greatest enemy." This is true today. 

It is estimated that in the year 1962, there were 68,000,000 American 
adults who drank alcoholic beverages in some degree. Of these, 5,400,000 
were alcoholics and another 4,100,000 were heavy dlrinkers or problem 
drinkers (pre-alcoholics). Take into account that for each one of these 
9,500,000 there are five additional people whose lives are adversely affected 
by their drinking. Alcohol is a potent factor in the destruction of many 
homes, and its victims fill our prisons. It is a major contributor to the 
crime rate in our land which is at an all-time high and is increasing 
annually. 

But the story does not end here. Alcohol is writing a very shameful 
and bloody record on the highways of our land. In 1962 there were: 
40,500 deaths on the highways (2,900 more than 1901) and 3,345,000 in- 
juries on the highways (228,000 more than 1961). 

Some estimates go as high as 75% in the relation of alcohol to these 
accidents. The Highway Patrol says that alcohol was a factor in more 
than 50% of the fatal accidents on North Carolina highways last year. 

The Christian Action League is an organization of the evangelical 
denominations of North Carolina for action in areas of common concern 
in the moral issues of the day. An Executive Director is employed for 
full-time service in promoting the work of the organization. The financial 
support of the League comes from donations by the affiliated denomi- 
nations, from churches and from individuals who are concerned. 

The Christian Action League seeks (a) to unite all who believe in 
total abstinence from alcoholic beverages to a cooperative effort to agi- 
tate, legislate and educate against this social evil; (b) to awaken public 
interest in opposing gambling, narcot'c addiction, salacious literature 

40

and acts of vandalism; (c) to promote programs, for frlie -rehabilitation "of 
the victims of alcoholic beverages and other narcotics..

SOUTH MOUNTAIN (REGION 8) BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

T. A. Lineberger spoke briefly concerning the work at the South 
Mountain Baptist Camp. The following report was adopted: 

The South Mountain Baptist Camp, located about 10 miles southeast 
of Morganton, belongs to Region 8, but our Association has done very 
little toward developing it. However, improvements are steadily being 
made. 

The Camp is growing and has had its finest summer this past summer. 
Counting the staff of 17 each week, there were 1,360 who attended. 

There were both G.A. and R.A. Camps held. The total attendance by 
associations was as follows : Catawba River — 298, Gaston — 263, Green 
River — 90, Kings Mountain — 164, Sandy Run — iSo, South h ork — 47, 
South Yadkin — 97, South Mountain — 66, Theron Rankin — 53, and the 
camp for the deaf — 67. 

667 made various decisions for Christ. 102 boys and girls accepted 
Christ as their Saviour. 

Five R.A. and five G.A. camps are being planned for next summer with 
an expected attendance of 1,800. 

It is hoped that the Sandy Run Association will do something. for this 
camp financially.

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 
Rev. Harold Wilson presented the following report, which was adopted. 

Whereas, the churches of the Sandy Run Association have had the 
opportunity to meet in its seventy-fourth annual session on October 22, 
1963 at the Florence Baptist Church and on October 23 at the Sandy 
Mush Baptist Church. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we give special thanks to 
the following: 

(1) To the host churches, their pastors and members who provided so 
adequately for our comfort and needs ; 

(2) To each person who appeared on the program, both local and from 
other areas of our state, for the information contained in reports, the 
inspiration of the special music, and the challenge of the messages; 

(3) To each person who has served in any capacity in our associational 
work this year, for their time arid effort in carrying out the responsi- 
bilities of their office ; 

47

(4) To Mr. Van Carroll, our associational missionary, for his consistent 
leadership in co-ordinating and promoting all phases of our work in 
the association and to Miss Martha Jean McFarland for assisting him 
in compiling the reports for this session and helping to make all the 
necessary detailed arrangements involved; 

(5) To the Rescue Squad for the facilities placed at our disposal and 
to the police officers for their assistance with traffic each day ; 

(6) To our Heavenly Father for all His love and blessings to each 
of us as individuals for which we would now express our gratitude to 
Him by obedience to His commands to go and tell others in our own 
communities and around the world of His love for them. We do pledge 
ourselves to truly acknowledge our stewardship by the giving freely of 
ourselves and our possessions that all men everywhere may know our 
Saviour's love. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harold Wilson 

The following resolution was also presented and adopted. 

Whereas, we seek to follow the Will of God and 

Whereas, we believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and 

Whereas, we are ambassadbrs, sharing Christ with the whole world, 
and therefore cannot remain silent on the pressing social problems of 
our day, 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we ask the help of our 
Heavenly Father in bringing Christ's answer to the pressing problems 
of our world, look to His inspired Word for guidance in all we do, and 
follow the example of Jesus by showing forth His love in our relation- 
ships with those who differ from us in color, custom, or conviction. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOEVED that we give due consideration 
to the "Disturbing Report" on page 24 of "The Advance Book of Re- 
ports," and urge our churches to take definite steps to reverse any down- 
ward trend.

The report of the Nominating Committee was given by Rev. L. R. 
McNeill. The report was adopted and is included in the Associational

zations get their officers to the chairman of the Nominating Committee 
before time for his report. 

The congregation sang the hymn, "Send A Great Revival." 



EVANGELISM REPORT 



Rev. A. B. Bumgarner presented the report on Evangelism, which was 
adopted. This report was spoken to by Rev. M. O. Owens, pastor of 
the East Baptist Church, Gastonia. 

As we close the record book upon another associational year, we 
humbly thank our heavenly Father for the victories won, and we turn 
our attention to the task before us. 

During the year the churches have reported additions as follows: By 
baptism, 384. By letter, etc., 449. Total 833. 

There is much to be done as we continue our efforts to get ready for 
the great endeavor before us in 1964. We, in our own strength, cannot 
bring a revival but there is no record in history of a revival among God's 
people against their will. History reveals that every spiritual revival 
has come only when God's people had longed for it and earnestly prayed 
for it. Also, a fervent proclaiming of the Gospel has always been in 
evidence when God poured out His spirit in power upon His people. Of 
course, this means that revivals are of God, but it also means that He 
uses His people in them. 

1964 has been designated as the climatic Jubilee year for our best 
effort under God in evangel ; sm. Plans call for Jubilee Revivals in every 
Baptist Church on the North American Continent. 

Southern Baptist's TOP PLANS for 1964 are listed below We should 
prayerfully study them and follow them as the Holy Spirit leads. 

Fall, 1963, Sunday School Enrolment Increase ; New Year's Eve Prayer 
Service, December 31, 1963; Associational Evangelism Clinic, January 3;

The objects of the Association shall be to devise and promote measures 
for increasing the harmony, intelligence, and spiritual power of the

Respectfully submitted, 
Martha J. McFarland 

COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS REPORT 

]n the absence of J. R. Featherston, the following report of the Com- 
mittee on Ordinations was adopted: 

The work of the Ordinations Committee has been limited simply be- 
cause we have not been called upon. We are reporting only two ordination 
services, though we are quite sure there have been others. 

The committee met first on January 13, 1964, at the Sandy Mush Church 
for the purpose of questioning Brother Bill Holland for ordination to 
the gospel ministry. The committee unanimously recommended his 
ordination, which service followed at the Sandy Mush Church on the 
following Sunday, January 19, 1964. Brother Holland is pastor of the 
Campfield Memorial Baptist Church. 

The second meeting of the committee was held at the Florence Church 
on February 28, 1964, for the purpose of questioning Brother Johnny 
Bridges for ordination to the gospel ministry. The committee unanimously 
recommended his ordination, which service followed at the Concord 
Church on the following Sunday, March 1, 1964. Brother Bridges is 
pastor of the Faith Baptist Church. 

As chairman, of your committee, I would strongly urge that in the 
future all churches with men to be ordained, the pastors in these churches, 
as well as the men themselves, please do not by-pass this committee but 
let them assist you in this important work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. R. Featherston 

As no new churches and missions had been organized during the year 
there was no report from the Committee on the Location of new Churches 
and Missions.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE REPORT 

Rev. I,. R. McNeill presented the report on Financial Assistance which 
was adopted as follows : 

Financial Aid received through the State Mission Program has given 
added support to the work of Christ in our association again this year. 

Associational aid was for the amount og $900.00, and lot aid granted 
to Glenwood Church was for the amount of $750.00. 

We are aware of the fact that services rendered by the ministries of 
the Convention staff and departments such as Sunday School, Training 
Union, Evangelism, Music, Brotherhood, Fruitland Institute, Surveys, 
Schools of Missions, etc. When the association or churches use these 
services, it represents many thousands of dollars which are not put on 
a record book. 

Respectfullv submitted, 
L. R. McNeill 

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

The following report on Stewardship was adopted: 

The Cooperative Program helps us to meet a total world missions task. 
Through this means our churches are able to present a united front and 
to develop a unified approach. 

Since 1925 the Cooperative Program has been the channel enabling 
North Carolina Baptists to support the world ministry committed to 
them by Christ in the Great Commission. 

Your church has a part in the support of over 5,000 missionaries who 
baptized over 58,000 people last year if you give through the Cooperative 
Program. 

In addition to these missionaries, we help 63 Baptist Hospitals, 45 
orphanages, 14 homes for aging and 1,132 schools around the world as 
we give through the Cooperative Program. 
#. 

The individual Christian worships with tithes and Offerings in his local 
church. The church plans a budget and decides what portion shall be 
given to all denominational causes through the Cooperative Program. 

Contributions from the; churches through the Cooperative Program 
for all causes are sent to the Convention office in Raleigh. Cooperative 
Program gifts are then divided between all missions, Christian Educ- 
ation, and Social Service work of Southern Baptists. Each Baptist 
hospital, children's home, school, home for aging, and each area of 
general mission work receives a part of the Cooperative Program dollar. 

The sun never sets on the work of our Cooperative Program. 

By decision of the Special Convention in Greensboro, our churches 
are urged to increase their giving through the Cooperative Program 
by at least 35%. Receipts beyond the basic budget for this year make 
up an advanced section of the Cooperative Program and is allocated for 
expansion and capital improvement in the program of Higher Christian 
Education, through our seven Baptist colleges (85^- for colleges, 15% 
for student centers.) 

o 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Our people are giving approximately one third of the tithe into their 
churches. The churches give an average of a little more than eight cents 
of each dollar of church income through the Cooperative Program to 
witness to two billion lost people in the world. 

During the past associational year 53 churches in Sandy Run Associ- 
ation gave a total of $85,221.00 through the Cooperative Program. Eleven 
churches, according to available records, did not contribute to the World 
Program of Jesus through the Cooperative Program. 

This in part is the suggested report on stewardship from our Baptist 
leaders in Raleigh. 

Respectfully submitted, 
M. W. Stallings

Brief histories of the host churches as prepared by the Historian. 

First Baptist Church 

Cool Springs Church, as the First Baptist Church was originally known, 
was organized in December, 1848, with seventeen charter members coming 
largely from the Bostic, Doggett, Goode, Hardin, Harrill, and Rogers 
families. The church derived the name Cool Springs from the springs 
nearby bearing that name. 

The present church building is the fourth to be erected during the 
history of the church. The first church, built of logs, was located north 
of the present Cool Springs Cemetery. A second church was built in 1867 
following the construction of a railroad through the church property. 
This building was erected on the south side of the railroad near the 
present elementary school building. It was used until 1889, when a brick 
church was constructed at the corner of West Main and Church Streets. 

In the church records of February 22, 1889, the following entry is found : 
"Motion to move into new church house in Forest City. Motion carried." 
It was at this time that the name of the church was changed from Cool 
Springs to Forest City. 

Construction of the present church building began in 1913, and on 
February 21, 1915, the congregation met in the new church for the first 
time. 

The next building program inaugurated by the church was the con- 
struction of the pastor's hom,e in 1923. This was followed by the erection 
of an educational building in 1926. This building, named the "Alexander 
Memorial Building," in memory of Mr. J. F. Alexander, was first occupied 
in March, 1927.

Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Growth and development in the intervening years created a need for 
more educational space and in 1957, during the ministry of Dr. H. Hansel 
Stembridge, Jr., a chapel and several more classrooms were added on to 
the sanctuary building. 

Down through the years the church has realized the importance of 
missions, and as a result, approximately 48% of the budget this year will 
be invested in mission causes. And following the tradition of her 116 year 
history, the more than 900 members of First Baptist Church look to the 
future in Christ as they continue their ministry to Forest City and the 
world at large. 

Mt. Pleasant (C) Baptist Church 

Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church had a rather unusual beginning. It had 
its start in the minds of three men who were unsaved but yet felt a need 
for a Sunday School for their children. One of the men agreed to give 
both land and timber for the erection of a church building. When the 
promised building was completed in December of 1848, Elder Thomas 
Dixon held a revival meeting. From that meeting came plans for the 
organization of a Baptist Church. A few weeks later, on January 9, 1849, 
the new church was constituted with 21 charter members. 

From that log building, built in 1848, the church has moved to two 
other buildings near the original location. The present structure was 
erected near the turn of the century and has been enlarged and remodeled 
several times. An educational plant was built in 1954 with a capacity for 
teaching over 250. The auditorium was completely remodeled in 1960. 
A home for the pastor was built in 1959 bringing the total church pro- 
perty to be valued at over $200,000, although built for much less. 

The church has long cooperated with the Sandy Run Association, being 
one of the original churches forming the association. Mt. Pleasant has 
been host to the annual meeting of the association on five occasions, the 
last being in 1964. 

The Sunday School is fully graded, as is the Training Union. An active 
W. M. U. and Brotherhood leads the church in a program of mission 
education. The resident membership is now 225, with a Sunday School 
enrollment of 226. 

Since there are two churches in the Sandy Run Association named 
Mt. Pleasant, they are distinguished by the use of the letters "C" and 
"R" which show the county in which the respective churches are located, 
Cleveland and Rutherford. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Cecil W. Cothran 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The following report on the Sunday School was adopted: 

The Associational Sunday School work has been good during the past 
year. All phases of the work have been carried out. But there is a need 
for a greater effort on the part of our Association, every Sunday School 
and every individual as we face the challenge of the new year. 

The Sunday Schools of our churches have been assigned! the tasks 
of outreach, teaching the Bible, leading all church members to worship 
and witness daily, providing opportunities to perform the personal 

30 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



ministries of the church, furnishing workers for various projects, and 
interpreting the work of the church and denomination. 

Dr. A. V. Washburn, secretary of our Southern Baptist Sunday Schools, 
says, "Before outreach can become a continuing reality, our churches 
must get their programs in the right order. The natural order is the 
reaching of people, the winning of the lost, and the development that 
should come out of it." 

Southern Baptist Sunday Schools are seeking to enroll ten million 
by 1970. In order to achieve this goal we must gain approximately 30% 
in the next six years. Our part in North Carolina is to enroll one million 
by 1970. 

We are asking each Sunday School in our association to> accept an 
enrollment increase of 2% for 1965, 3% for 1966, 4% for 1967, 5% for 1968, 
6% for 1969, and 7% for 1970. Evangelism, stewardship, missions, de- 
scipleship ■ — all of these wait upon outreach. 

Also, each Sunday School is urged to observe January Week of Bible 
Study, plan a Vacation Bible School, promote Operation Home Study 
and other opportunities of training, cooperate in the Adult Thrust, to 
participate in the associational Sunday School projects, and to encourage 
workers to attend the Sunday School emphases at the North Carolina 
Baptist Assembly, Fruitland, and Ridgecrest. As our Sunday Schools 
go, so will our churches go. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sam Jenkins 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

In the absence of Z. W. Tolley, Joe Bridges presented the following 
report on Training Union, which was adopted. 

"Commit Thou To Faithful Men" was the theme of our 1964 Training 
Union. 

"M" Night at Spencer Baptist Church on December 2, 1963, gave in- 
spiration for our year. Rev. Tom S. Lawrence, First Baptist Church, 
Union, S. C. brought the message. The attendance was 515 with 25 churches 
and 23 pastors participating. 

Youth Night at Race Path Baptist Church, was led by Kenny Morrison. 
The message was by Rev. Don Moore of Gardner- Webb College, and 
music by the Youth Choir of the Cliffside Baptist Church. 114 attended 
from 15 of our churches, with Cliffside having 19. Seven pastors were 
present. 

The Associational Training Union Tournament this year had one church,

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

After the adoption of the following report on the Woman's Missionary 
Union presented by Mrs. J. E. Cargill, our Associational Missionary and 
his wife were honored and presented with a gift. 

The Jubilee Year has suggested to W. M. U. members that we "Hold 
high the Torch," For Liberty and Light. These three major points we 
have emphasized: Aim to Advance, Celebrate the Jubilee and Present 
Post-Jubilee Program. 

Annual reports have not come in to tell just how far we have advanced 
in the work. However, we can report advancement in mission study and 
reading mission books, increase in gifts to special offerings and more 
prayer retreats have been held and associational officers held one in 
September. 

Reading the New Testament, has been one phase of Jubilee celebration. 
Societies have had celebrations in their churches and honored their 
pastors. We had delegates to the State W. M. U. Convention in Durham, 
and several ladies attended the Jubilee Convention in Atlantic City. 

The Post-Jubilee Program of the Southern Baptist Convention has been 
presented. The ladies were well represented at the regional meetings 
held for the promotion of this program. 

Leaders have availed themselves of several opportunities for better 
training. About ninety W. M. S., Y. W. A. and Sunbeam leaders received 
Cards of Accreditation from a Leadership Training Course last No- 
vember. Ridgecrest and Fruitland have been well attended. Two associ- 
ational officers were at the Interracial Institute in Charlotte last fall, 
and received help in dealing with the current racial situation. 

At the printing of this report, the Y. W. A. report had not been re- 
ceived. 

The G. A. report is good. On April 6, an Intermediate G. A. Banquet 
was held at First Church, Forest City. Mrs. Zeb Moss spoke to 135 girls 
and their leaders from 14 churches. A Junior G. A. picnic was held at 
Race Path, May 9. The theme for this meeting was, "His Way, Mine.,, 
Twenty-three churches were represented with an attendance of 270. 
We have 73 organizations in 37 churches — 30 of these attained recog- 
nitions on Aims for Advancement. Twenty-seven of our churches have 
no G. A. work. 

The Sunbeam work has been carried on by local leadership, no associ- 
ational director. 

Five years and two months as Associational President of W. M. U. 
have ended my service in this capacity. I express sincere gratitude for 
your every gesture of kindness and support, your prayers, cooperation 
and encouragement. These parting words I leave as a challenge to you, 
"Look on our Associational field, for truly they present a tremendous 
and bounteous harvest for us."

MUSIC MINISTRY REPORT 

The following report on the Music Ministry, which was presented by 
Malone Thomason, was adopted: 

We are happy to report the largest attendance in our associational 
music schools that has ever been recorded. We had two weeks of schools 
the third and fourth weeks in July. The third week we had six group 
schools with 31 of our churches participating and 8 churches outside our 
association. 

The fourth week we had a central school at the First Baptist Church, 
Forest City, with 24 churches of our association participating and six 
churches outside. 

The group school enrollment was 392, and the central school enrollment 
was 99, making a total of 491, enrolled. A total of 48 churches participated 
in the schools, 36 in our association and 12 outside. 20 of our churches 
participating in both weeks of schools. 

On Monday night, December 16, at 7 o'clock, we held a successful As- 
sociational Christmas Carol Sing on the Town Square of Forest City with 
near 300 present. 

The regional Choir Festival last March was held at the Elizabeth 
Church, Shelby, with several choirs of our churches participating and 
doing their churches and our Association credit, all qualifying to par- 
ticipate in the State Festivals. 

In addition, our organization sponsored music and singing at various 
meetings of the other organizations, especially Sunday School and 
Training Union meetings. We want to mention especially the singing at 
"M" Night and the Associational Evangelistic Conference at the First 
Church, Forest City. 

Moreover, the Associational Music Officers met six times during the 
year in planning the various activities. 

We welcome Miss Josephine D'Arpa and Mr. W. C. Giles into our 
Association. Miss D'Arpa is Minister of Music at the First Church, Forest 
City, and Mr. Giles is Minister of Music at the Concord Baptist Church.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

The Brotherhood report, presented by Bill Holland in the absence 
of Hugh McBrayer, was adopted as follows: 

There is a new concept of the Brotherhood as follows: "A Brotherhood 
is a fellowship of Baptist men, members of the church, organized to 
advance the cause of Christ through a program of missionary activities, 
designed to inform, motivate and involve men in the mission task of their 
church." 

The Brotherhood is the only organization in the church with a program 
of missionary education and promotion that involves men and boys. 

33 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



The new and well defined objectives of this organization are as follows* 

1. A deeper commitment to missions 

2. A more meaningful prayer life for missions 

3. A larger stewardship on behalf of missions 

4. A personal involvement in missions 

The organizational structure remains the same, but the four Brother- 
hood emphasis will have a more solid missionary base. World Missions 
will emphasize missionary education and commitment to missions. De- 
velopment in the area of Personal Stewardship will be an added em- 
phasis on the support of missions. The area of Christian Witnessing 
will be tied in directly to Christian service through missionary activities ; 
and work in Royal Ambassadors will be pointed toward«'s missions ad 
vance. 

Necessarv helps for a Brotherhood president are the CHURCH PRO- 
GRAM GUIDEBOOK, the booklet entitled "The Role of Baptist Men 
and Bovs in Missionarv Education and Missions Promotion," the 
"Brotherhood Journal," and the BROTHERHOOD HANDBOOK. 

Camp Caraway completed its first full season with 998 boys plus staff 
for ten weeks. There will be additional facilities for the 1965 season. 

The final payment on the 1,050 acre Caraway site will be made next 
January. j 

In our Association the past year, a fine RA Conclave was held on 
November 5, with Missionaries Zeb and Evelyn Moss as speakers. On 
July 27-30, 67 boys and 7 counselors attended RA Camp at the South 
?\lountain Baptist Camp. There were several rededications and profes- 
sions of faith. 

The Associational Brotherhood held two very fine meetings the past 
year. The speaker for the first one was Judge Forrest Robertson, and 
the speaker for the second meeting was Attorney B. T. Henderson of 
Winston- Sal em. 

The Associational Brotherhood President visited in seven of our 
churches during the year to promote the Brotherhood work. One Brother- 
hood was re-organized.

LIBRARY REPORT 

Mrs Frank Willis presented the following Library Report which was 
adopted. 

As we come to the close of a year's work with 64 churches and only 
24 church libraries; with 3 meetings and an average of 4 churches repre- 
sented with an average attendance of 6; and witli so much emphasis on 
the Adult Thrust, I am searching for something to say that will help 
you to see every church needs a library. Luke 5:1-11 comes to my mind 
very vividly as a pattern for our work as an organization. Jesus said, 
". . . put out a little from the land . . . put out into deep water. . ." This 
suggests that getting libraries started in all the churches will be a slow 
process. Libraries are a necessity. Tt is our job to convince you of this. 
We accept thai challenge.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 

The following report on Associational Missions, presented by W. V. 
Carroll, was adopted: 

It has been a privilege to work another year with you good people of 
the Sandy Run Association. The associational missionary is very grate- 
ful for the privilege and for the cooperation that has been given. 

We have not started any new mission work this year. So far as we 
know, all the rest homes are being ministered to by some church, and 
there is no need of a new work being started except in the State Prison 
Camp. We need some church or churches to send two workers there 
each Sunday morning to teach the Sunday School lesson and counsel 
with the prisoners. 

The big need in our Association is to expand and strengthen the 
present work There ought to be more people in our Sunday Schools, 
Training Unions, Woman's Missionary Unions, and Brotherhoods. More 
church libraries and better use r^ade of the ones we have are also needs. 

Another thing, more people ought to be enlisted to do something for 
the Lord, and not place too man]" responsibilities on a few. What do you 
suppose the Lord thinks of his children, who fold their hands, sit placidly 
in an easy chair, and do nothing? 

From the associational standpoint, how we need better cooperation and 
participation in the work. Have our churches started going in circle s 
without spiritual vision and concern enough to do anything beyond their 
church fields ? 

Amidst all our needs to move up, 27 of our churches helped to make 
the Schools of Missions in September the finest I have ever been in. 

During the year the missionary has visited in 174 services ; delivered 
33 sermons and addresses ; taught 19 Sunday School lessons ; presented 
pictures 10 times ; helped examine and ordain two preachers ; helped in 
two Vacation Bible Schools; held and attended 225 individual conferences 
and committee meetings and held numerous telephone conferences; 
conducted three VBS Clinics; attended 53 Associations; published 12 
issues of bulletins and mailed 9,016 copies and 9,997 letters and cards; 
and traveled 9,769 miles. 

We would like to express our great appreciation to the Florence Church 
for a nice, comfortable office, and to Miss Martha Jean McFarland,

T. A. Eineberger spoke briefly on the South Mountain Baptist Camp. 

The following reports on Christian Education, Flomes for the Aging, 
Baptist Hospital, Children's Flomes and State Missions were adopted. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

The Christian Eife is an educational process whether it be taught in 
the home, church, an institution of higher learning or a combination of 
all of these. All of the church organizations are, or should be, an avenue 
in Christian Education. Since our concept of Christian Education enters 
into every aspect of our life, it is of vast importance that we be concerned 
and personally involved with any and all phases of work which include 
the growth of the Christian life. 

North Caro'ina's seven Baptist Colleges are living testimonies that 
we are seeking to offer more to those who dare to seek a fuller life. Yet, 
we must be willing to db more for these institutions so they can become 
more effective instruments for the cause of Christ. 

Our forefathers set about the tasks of providing colleges where Chris- 
tian Education could be filtered into the mainstreams of life, we must 
continue to do justice to their task, (our responsibilities are great, but 
our potentialities are greater. Our burdens are heavy, but the results 
will be rewarding. The competition is overwhelming but victory shall 
come because we know the mission that lies behind the cri'sis. 

The total enrollment for our seven Baptist Colleges is 11,188. There 

36 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



are 489 individuals who are preparing lor full time Christian service. To 
this date these institutions have graduated a total of 44,375 people. 

We can help this work by: 

1. Pray for these institutions and their leaders. 

2. Increase your Cooperative Program giving. 

3. Observe Christian Education Day. 

4. Become personally involved and offer your assistance.

Harold D. Delozier 

HOMES FOR THE AGING REPORT 

Our Baptist Homes have just completed their 13th year of operation 
and are entering into the 14th year with eager anticipation and with much 
enthusiasm, God has blessed these brief years with an abundance of His 
love and with the good things of life. We have come from one resident 
and one building, since March of 1951, to 160 residents and four buildings 
in 1964. 

The choicest bit of news for 1964 is the development of a fifth Baptist 
Home, to be located! at Yancey ville, N. C. We are hoping to begin con- 
struction on this new project during this year, and the burden of our 
hearts will have been relieved, in a measure, by being able to care for 
thirty additional residents. The Home of Yanceyville is the greatest 
single bequest that has ever been left for us in our ministry. Enough 
land at Yanceyville and money were given to the Baptist Foundation 
of North Carolina for us, by the late R. Sterling Groves, and his sister 
Mrs. Sallie Willie Groves Bradsher, to build and equip the home there. 
We will still need to look to our Baptist people for the maintenance of 
this home and for assistance in supplementing needy residents. 

Support for these homes comes from Special Day offerings, received 
in the 3,400 Baptist churches and through the homes' share in the Co- 
operative Program. 

Life among the residents these days is most interesting and filled 
with a variety of experiences. All are expressing thanksgiving to God for 
the people called! "Baptists," and for the happiness and security of the 
homes that our Baptist people are helping to make possible for them. 

Let us join our hearts in prayer and our lives in dedication that we 
may give a good account of our stewardship in this great area of human 
concern and give an answer to as many of these dear people as possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles McDaniel 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

The trustees and administration of our Baptist Hospital have expressed 
their appreciation for the interest and concern our churches have shown 
in the ministry of the hospital. In behalf of thousands of our people who 
cannot pay for the skilled care received at our Medical Center, they 
express their thanks for our Mother's Day gifts which make this service 
possible. 

37 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



This is a crucial year in the life of our hospital. It is serving more 
sick people than ever before in its history. For more than a year there 
has been an average of above 700 sick people on the waiting list for beds. 
A number of seriously ill and injured persons have had to be sent from 
the emergency rooms to other hospitals because no beds were available. 
The needs continue to grow faster than its capacity to serve. 

Another difficult problem is that of meeting the cost of caring for 
those who cannot pay for the service they need. Our hospital tries to 
get all the help it can for these persons from welfare and health agencies, 
but these agencies do not pay the total cost and many persons are not 
eligible for such assistance. 

The hospital receives a share of our Cooperative Program money, 
but the Mother's Day Fund is the only means the hospital has of bridging 
a wide gap between the funds available and the cost of caring for those 
who cannot pay for their medical service. 

Our hospital and medical school are beginning a large development 
program to increase the capacity of our Medical Center. The people of 
the Winston-Salem area have expressed their confidence in our Medical 
Center by pledging more than seven million dollars to> this enlargement 
program. When our hospital has increased its capacity to meet our 
specialized medical needs, will our churches provide the money to take 
care of those who cannot pay for these services but need, them. 

This is a heavy burden and we call upon our pastors and other church 
leaders to inform our people of the work and the great need. It is a 
greatly needed and wonderful ministry to which Jesus gave himself 
without reserve. We, who arc his followers, must not fail those to whom 
he would minister through us.

B. Fred Bryant 

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Helping children and young people to grow and develop toward Chris- 
tian maturity is one of the greatest privileges in life. It is the purpose 
of the Children's Homes to develop the highest quality of men and 
women possible out of boys and girls who are served. 

Children are provided food, clothing and shelter when they come to 
the homes. But of greater importance than material things is the genuine 
interest, concern and love given every child by the Christian men and 
women who work with them. Many children who have known only heart- 
break and tragedy learn to love again — learn to trust in themselves, 
in adults and in God. 

A member of this year's senior class expressed her appreciation for 
the Children's Homes in the following way: "Living at one of the homes 
has given me a chance to make something out of myself. I have been 
afforded the opportunity of getting a good education. Things have been 
learned and friendships have been formed which will bless my life as 
Jong as I live. Best of all T have learned to know, to trust, to follow and 
to serve Christ as my Saviour. I want North Carolina Baptists to know 
how very much I appreciate all that they have done for me and for thou- 
sands of other boys and girls who have needed a home, love and care."

Applications for the admission of children to the Homes far exceed 
resourses with which to care for them. Many couples who have a double 
measure of love to share with homeless and dependent children have a 
wonderful opportunity of service awaiting them through the foster home 
program. j 

Financial support for the past year has come from the following sources : 
Cooperative Program, 36 per cent; Thanksgiving Offering, 30 per cent; 
Once-a-Month Offerings, 15 per cent, and all other, 19 per cent. 

Most North Carolina Baptists are well acquainted with Charity and 
Children, official publication of the Baptist Children's Homes. This unique 
newspaper is published each week and goes to more than 55,000 sub- 
scribers. Well over half the Baptist churches in the state receive it in 
bundles for distribution to members on Sunday. See that your church re- 
ceives Charity and Children so that every family may be better informed 
about the work of North Carolina Baptists, and particularly the program 
of child care. The subscription price is sixty cents per year in bundle form.

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

When Christ left his followers on earth, he gave a special message 
concerning the work of the Kingdom of God. He said, "Go ye therefore 
and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the 
Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things I have 
commanded you : and lo, I am with you alwavs even unto the end> of the 
World." 

In our State Mission program, it is encouraging to see one phase of 
Baptist work cover so many areas. The ministry of State Missions reaches 
every corner of North Carolina from the mountains to the sea. The work 
includes Associational Missions, Institutional Ministries, Special summer 
mission work, Pastors' Schools, Schools of Missions, Pastoral Aid, 
Church IyOt Aid, Church Loan and special work with pastors and churches 
near government bases. 

The deepest concern of State Missions is with people . . . people in all 
walks of life. The entire structural program of state missions is built 
around the aim of making an impact unon persons. 

Churches making a generous contribution to State Missions help to 
undergird the work that is reaching thousands yearly with the message 
of our Saviour.

ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 

"Life Benefit Plan" is offered to church and denominational employees 

— Every pastor, church and denominational employee is eligible for the 
new group term Life Benefit Plan being offered by the Annuity Board, 
regardless of whether they are a member of one of the Board's retirement 
plans. Tlie Board is currently in a campaign to enlist the 3,000 members 
needed to put tlie Life Benefit Plan into effect, and hopes to have it in 
operation by October 1 of this year. 

Cost is Low — The new Plan provides low cost life protection to mem- 
bers while in active service, during disability or in actual age retirement. 
Cost is only \°/r of the annual salary basis- with minimum basis of partici- 
pation set at $4,000 and maximum at $12,000. Minimum payments will be 
$3.34 a month and maximum payments, $10.00. 

Benefits are Large — The widow or beneficiary of a member 45 or under

death. Thus the widow of a man 44 years of age who was paying on a 
$12,000 salary ba<ds would receive $30,000. If death was accidental her 
benefit would be twice this, or $60,000.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

In the widest sense Stewardship "is the maximum use of one's life for 
the glory of God and the good of mankind." The North Carolina Baptist 
Foundation, Inc., encourages the Stewardship of Current Income in 
systematic and proportionate giving from current income. The Founda- 
tion also encourages the Stewardship of Accumulated! Possessions by 
single block giving at infrequent intervals from accumulated income 
during one's lifetime and/or at one's death. You will note that the Bap- 
tists have put the major emphasis on the Stewardship of Accumulated 
Income. There are many ways that the Foundation assists a person in 
making his gifts through accumulated income such as: (1) by living 
trust, (2) by gift annuity, (3) by bequests in wills. 

The Foundation also serves by meeting with you and your attorney, 
upon your request, in connection with preparation of legal documents 
where the Baptist Foundation is to be involved. The Foundation ofTers 
services to individual churches, associations, and to all of our Baptist 
agencies and institutions. 

The Foundation, emphasing the making of Christian wills, has two 
fi'ras, "God's Will Through Yours" and "Treasures In Heaven," on Chris- 
tian will making, which are available to any organization upon request.

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMISSION REPORT 

The Christian Life Commission is the Southern Baptist agency assigned 
to work in the area of Christ' an social ethics. The Commission's purpose 
is to help Southern Baptists to make practical application of the gospel 
in such aspects of daily living as family life, race relations, moral issues, 
daily work, and Christian citizenship. 

The Christian Life Commission seeks to discern what obedience to 
Jesus Christ means in the concrete situations of modern life. The Chris- 
tian gospel declares that love is better than hate, that honesty is better 
than falsehood, that purity is better than filth, that peace is better than 
war, that justice is better than exploitation, that giving is better than 
getting, that "idleal" is more significant than "image," that character is 
better than popu'arity, that it is better to suffer for Christ's sake than to 
compromise with evil. 

According to- careful estimates, the Commission's written materials had 
a total circulation last year of 30,936,596. In addition, 261,537 tracts from 

43 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



the Commission's 39 tracts now in print, were distributed on request to 
Southern Baptists. 

The Commission works closely with the Christian Life Commissions 
in the various state conventions and in the associations. It publishes a 
Newsletter to keep in touch with these state and associational leaders 
vSpecial service is rendered to the denomination through a ministry in 
the areas of world peace with justice, human welfare, and counseling 
and guidance.

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

The winning of people to Christ and the training and development of 
our people must be carried on primarily through preaching, teaching, 
and the use of good! religious literature. We must place in the hands of 
the people religious literature in the forms of tracts, magazines and 
books. The Bible, of course, occupies the chief place in our list of 
literature. 

In the modern world nothing stays around very long that doesn't have 
some definite purpose and mission. The Biblical Recorder, now 131 years 
old, grows in strength and stature because its course is fixed; upon the pri- 
mary purpose of service to the Baptists of North Carolina. 

Never has there been a day when the Christian witness was more 
needed in dealing with the problems of the world. 

One of the main purposes of the Biblical Recorder is to inform. Baptists 
cannot properly do until they properly know. Its staff gathers, sifts, and 
publishes significant news from as many sources as possible. It keeps 
abreast of the important activities of the State Convention and; its agen- 
cies and institutions. It also publishes news of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention and of the entire Christian world. 

Charity and Children, another source of Christian literature, has been 
published for over 76 years. It is printed on the campus of Mills Home in 
Thomasville, and is closely identified with the child care ministry. How- 
ever, it publishes other Baptist news in the state. Charity and Children 
costs 60 cents a year if sent to the church in bundle form. Individual 
subscriptions, sent weekly to each address, are $1.00 a year. 

We also have "Home Mission" and Commission" with other various 
kinds or organizational literature. I feel we have the best literature of 
any denomination, and if we are not the best informed denomination, it 
is because we arc failing to read.

The congregation was led in the singing of the hymn, "Send a Great 
Revival," which was followed by the report on Home Missions presented 
by James Estep. The report was adopted. 

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

There are now 2,299 missionaries serving in every state, Cuba, Panama, 
and Puerto Rico. An average of 30 missionaries were appointed each 
month last year. Yet critical personnel needs exist in mission center 
and Spanish-language work. 

There were 645 student summer missionaries who served ten weeks in 
every state and Panama dbring the twentieth year of the ministry. Also, 
750 Southern Baptist Chaplains presently serve in the military or with 
hospitals, industry and other institutions. 

More than 6 million dollars came from Southern Baptists through the 
Cooperative Program, the Annie Armstrong offering, and from other 
sources of income. This amounted to about 62 cents or a nickel per month 
for each Southern Baptist. 

New work and the Pioneer Areas received increasing support as the 
older and stronger states took additional financial responsibility. Two- 
thirds of the more than $4 million spent by the Mission Division went to 
the newer states. 

The mission opportunities in Puerto Rico were studied, and the Board 
voted to support work there on a limited basis in 1964. 

The church extension program is receiving increased emphasis in prep- 
aration for its role as the major vehicle to continue the 30,000 Movement. 
The 30,000 Movement, in its climatic year in 1964, reported by January 1 
that 5,884 churches and 16,016 missions had been started. 

Fourteen programs of work were adopted by the Board at its midyear 
meeting, becoming effective January 1. They are church extension, as- 
soeiational administration services, pioneer missions, language missions, 
church loans, chaplaincy, metropolitan missions, urban-rural missions, 
Jewish work, mission center work, National Baptist, evangelism, survey 
ami special studies, and special mission ministries.

A. B. Bumgarner spoke on the great needs of the pioneer areas and 
especially in North Dakota and made the following motion which was 
seconded by Elwood Orr : 

"That our Association attempt the sponsorship of a mission in North 
Dakota and that our Associatioual Treasurer be authorized to receive 
and disburse funds given by the churches for this specific purpose; that 
the moderator appoint a committee from the contributing churches to 
work with our North Carolina representative in North Dakota, Rev. Albert 
Laimn, in determining the area of greatest need, and work out the details 
involved in such a relationship." 

This motion carried after the adoption of the following amendment to 
the motion: "That it would be left in the hands of the executive com- 
mittee to work out all of the details in the disbursement of funds."

Rev. Harold Wilson presented the following report on Foreign Missions 
which was adopted : 

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

The Foreign Mission Board came to the close of 1963 with a mission 
staff in excess of 1,800, an objective toward which we have been working 
since 1948. Appointments totaling 195 during 1963 and 32 from January 
to May, 1964, bring the number of foreign missionaries in active service to 
1,819. Twenty-seven missionary associates are included in this number. 

Southern Baptists now have missionaries under appointment to 54 
political entities. In each country, mission work is carried on through 
a varying number of institutions — churches, schools, hospitals, publica- 
tion plants, good will centers. But all are interactive and the goal of each 
is evangelization. Whatever their institutional duties, all missionaries 
participate in work of the churches in their stations. 

The major lesson to be learned from the history of the last 25 years 
of foreign missions is that in view of national and international circum- 
stances which can greatly affect the work being done in any land, the 
wisest investment of missionary resourses is in the cultivation of New 
Testament churches. 

Total contributions of Southern Baptists for foreign missions amounted 
to $21,431,202.10 during 1963. Still, at year's end there were requests from 
the Missions (organizations of Southern Baptist missionaries) for more 
than $3,000,000 for urgently needed land, buildings, and equipment .Funds 
from the 1963 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering totaled $10,949,857.35. 

Southern Baptist foreign missions reached out to two additional coun- 
tries in 1963, and one in early 1964, but the "fields are white." In the words 
of Dr. Baker J. Cauthen, Executive Secretary of Foreign Missions we 
find our challenge. ''Southern Baptists must measure our mission under- 
taking by our potential — not by what we or others have done. When we 
put what we are doing alongside the reality of human need and the 
reality of open doors in the world, we recognize that we have hardly 
begun. Wo must measure what we are doing by the crisis of our day. This 
is the day of dlestiny." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harold Wilson 

Following special music by Malone Thomason, Harold Wilson, Audley 
Hamrick, and Marion Rector, Mrs. W. T. Roberson, Missionary to 
Vietnam, brought the missionary message. 

A bountiful lunch was served by the host church assisted by the Trinity 
Baptist Church. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

The afternoon session opened with music meditation by James Hall 
which was followed with the hymn, "Rock of Ages." 

Following the hymn, "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," by the 
Pastors' and Music Directors' Choir, a brief worship period was conducted 
by Raymond Hudson.

The following reports on the American Bible Society, Department of 
Program Services, and Christian Action League were adopted: 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

The chief concern of the American Bible Society is to get the Bible into 
the hands of those who do not have it and do so in a way that wi'l secure 
serious interest and receptive minds. This purpose is being accomplished 
through a program of translation, publication, distribution and Bible use 

promotion'. 

By the end of 1963 the Society had published portions of the Bible in 
1,216 languages; the full Bible in 231 languages, the New Testament in 
290 more new languages and dialects. However, there are still over 1,000 
languages in our world that as yet have no translation of any portion 
of the Bible. We can help put the Word of God into the hands of these 
language groups, through support of the American Bible Society. 

Our missionaries often look to the Society for portions of the Scripture 
to use in their work around the world. After a missionary has had to leave 
a particular location a copy of the Gospel continues to witness to the 
people there. 

In addition to the work done abroad the Society distributes Scripture 
volumes here at home to people who might not have access to them other- 
wise. Over a million volumes were distributed to the armed services last 
year. New Testaments can be purchased through the Society for as little 
as 214 a copy, making it possible for most people in America to have one. 

Southern Baptists are second only to the Methodists in the support of 
the American Bible Society. We gave $167,498 in 1963 compared to 
$172,771 given by our Methodist brothers. We need to do* more. 

It is suggested that our churches give at least these amounts annually: 
Smaller churches, $10 to $60; Larger churches, $60 to $300; Big City 
elm rches, $300 or more. 

Please send your gifts to our Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Perry Crouch, 
at 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, North Carolina. Mark them, "for the 
American Bible Society,''

The department will counsel with churches on such matters as : en- 
forced sound, closed circuit TV, broadcast equipment, chime systems, 
visual installations, projection equipment, background projection, 
non-projected aids, recording facilities, lighting effects, radio loops, 
and screen installations. 

Again this year tape recordings for use by the churches in the Con- 
vention were up 50% over the past year. The past year has seen a 
tremendous upsurge in the use of audio tape recordings. 

ll. GRAPHIC ARTS — This service includes design and production of 
printed materials, posters, folders, diagrams, streamers, thematic 
settings, and many other types produced in support of the Baptist 
program. 

III. NEWS SERVICE — The Department of Program Services has the 
responsibility of news coverage of Baptist work in North Carolina to 
more than 350 outlets including newspapers, radio and television 
stations in North Carolina. 

IV. TELEVISION AND RADIO — The department continues to pro- 
duce the Baptist network series of television programs, titled, A 
LIGHT UNTO MY PATH. This program is a mission work of the 
Convention designed to reach the minority groups including the deaf, 
the aging, and the unchurched in North Carolina. 

V. OTHER AREAS — The department shares in many and varied ser- 
vices of local, state and Convention-wide nature. It is the desire of 
the department to make its services available to every association 
and church.

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE REPORT 

The world renowned Dr. Albert Schweitzer has said, "Drink is our 
greatest wastrel, socially our greatest criminal, and morally and religiously 
our greatest enemy.'' This is true today. 

It is estimated that in the year 1963 there were 68,000,000 American 
adults who drank alcoholic beverages in some degree. Of these, 9,500,000 
were affected seriously ; 5-400,000 were alcoholics ; and 4,100,000 were prob- 
lem drinkers (pre-alcoholics). Take into effect the fact that for each 
of these 9,500,000 there are five additional people in these homes whose 
lives are adversely affected by these drinkers. Alcohol is a potent factor in 
the destruction of many homes and its victims fill our jails. It is a major 
contributor to our awful crime rate now raging in our country, which 
incidently is at an all time peak, and still on the increase. 

But the story does not end here. Alcohol is writing a very shameful and 
bloodly record, on the highways of our land. In 1963 there were over 
41,000 deaths on our highways, and nearly 4,000,000 injuries. Some esti- 
mates go as high as 75% in the relation of these accidents and alcohol. 
The Highway Patrol says that alcohol was a very evident factor in over 
50% of the fatal accidents on our highways, and no indictment of this 
menace can be made too strong.

EVANGELISM REPORT 



The report on Evangelism was presented by Rev. A. B. Bumgarner 
and was adopted. Dr. Forrest C. Freezor, former pastor in this State 
and Texas, and former Executive Secretary of the Baptist General Con- 
vention of Texas, and now Interim Pastor of the First Baptist Church, 
Shelby, brought an address on "Challenges We Face." 

The special five-year effort (known as Baptist Jubilee Advance), in 
evangelism and missions on the part of the Baptists of North America 
came to a close at the joint meeting of the groups in Atlantic City, New 
Jersey, in May, 1964. What was done is now history and we cannot go 
back to improve or to change the record. 

The record of our association reveals the following additions to the 
churches in 1964: 

By baptism, 378. By letter 468. Total, 846. 

The inevitable question arises, where do we go from here? What shall 
we do in 1965 ? 

We can and we must search our hearts before God to find His will 
for us and to experience His empowering as we endeavor to be obedient 
to His commands. This we need as individual Christians, as churches 
and as a denomination. 

Most of us need to take a fresh look at evangelism as it is practiced 
in our personal lives and in our local church. To do this on the right 

52 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



basis, we must first make an earnest effort to see what evangelism is 
as it is revealed in the New Testament. A good definition of the New 
Testament picture of evangelism is found in the new Southern Baptist 
Handbook on Evangelism w 7 hich is as follows : "Evangelism is the out- 
reach of the church by confrontation with the gospel of Christ to bring 
people to a personal faith and commitment to Christ as Saviour and Lord, 
in order that the committed may become a part of the outreach." 

This wonderful experience of Christ confronting the lost through His 
people will not become a reality in a life or a church merely by accepting 
and adopting a creed, a statement of doctrine, a set of rules for conduct. 
There must be the experience of being in Christ and a perennial vigi- 
lance in seeking to be used of Christ in His purpose of redemption. In 
the light of these and other pressing truths we should ever keep before 
us these objectives : 

1. To keep all programming and activities aimed at creating a spiri- 
tual atmosphere for evangelism in every church. 

•fHaN^dSMin ■<» a £> i *> v.<*j a *•! a* .• - '•»- • o ?*.-?> c-i. ».s « 1 

2. To keep alive a perennial awareness of the urgency of personal 
witnessing on the part of every Christian. 

3. To refine and intensify our revival efforts. 

4. To seek to keep the message positive, practical, scriptural and spir- 
itual with unceasing prayer and diligence. 

5. To spare nothing in seeing to it that the new and old church mem- 
bers become a part of the outreach. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. B. Bumgarner 

A memorial service was conducted by Rev. Audley Hamrick. After a 
solo, "When They Ring Those Golden Bells," by Sam Hargett, the names 
of those who had died during the year were read. 

The Seventy-Fifth Annual Session adjourned with prayer led by Rev. 
Joe J. Bridges. 

There were 336 messengers and visitors registered on the second day.

History of Host Churches 



SHILOH BAPTIST CHURCH 

Shiloh Baptist Church was the outgrowth of a small band of faithful 
believers who first met in the year 1833. On April 18, 1834 a church was 
organized and given the name Shiloh Baptist Church. This church joined 
the Broad River Association the same year that it was organized. The 
first church was built of logs and was located near the present site of 
the church. A more serviceable building was later constructed and was 
replaced in 1910 by a more modern building with a seating capacity of 
800. This building was destroyed by lire in 1940 and the present building 
was constructed to replace it in 1940. 

In the year 1959 the vShiloh Church greatly enlarged the educational 
building and installed a new heating system. 

in 1963 Shiloh added to its building a well constructed steeple, port- 
folio doors, and exterior painting. 

In 1964 Shiloh paid off indebtness, re-roofed the church building, land- 
scaped grounds, placed tile in two classrooms, installed chime system, 
and paved the parking area. 

In 1965 the church purchased 12.5 acres of land for future needs at the 
cost of $9,460.00. 

The church history would not be complete were we not to mention the 
"good old negro slaves" who once had their names on the church roll, and 
occupied seats in the rear of the building when they came with their 
masters to worship. Mr. Watson Abrams, one of the earliest prominent 
members of the church, owned a number of slaves. 

Shiloh Church has played a vital part in the religious life of this area. 
Churches that have grown out of the church are: Holly Springs, Adaville, 
Bethany, Mountain View, West Point, Gray's Creek, and Sulphur Springs. 

The present membership is 462, and Rev. Cecil Cothran is now serving 
as pastor. He came to the church in December of 1961. 

Present value of church property is approximately $100,000. 

Former pastors: Rev. Joab Wilkie, Rev. S. G. Hamilton, Rev. Win. 
Harrill, Rev. Henry Culbreth, Rev. A. Webb, Rev. Joseph Suttles, Rev. 
J. B. Justice, Rev. A. A. McSwain, Rev. George Rollins, Rev. Alford 
McMahan, Rev. C. V. Case, Rev. John Ruppe, Rev. W. F. Sorrells, Rev.

BOSTIC BAPTIST CHURCH 



On a Sunday afternoon, 1910, a group of men and women in and around 
Bostic decided to organize a Baptist church. They held their first meetings 
in a one room school house. 

The first church building, which was a framed structure, was erected 
where the present church building now stands. On the fourth Sunday, 
February, 1911, the congregation held its first services in their new church 
building. A presbytery was called together for the purpose of reorganizing 
the Bostic Church with 36 charter members. Rev. C. E. Beaver was elected 
to serve as the church's first pastor. The church grew and in order to meet 
the challenge of growth, the church voted on August 24, 1930 to tear down 
the old frame structure and erect a brick building which is in use today. 

The first services in the brick building were held May 31, 1931. The 
Reverend I. D. Harrill was pastor at the time this building was erected. 

A new educational plant was added in 1961 to take care of the growing- 
need. 

The church saw a need for a home for their pastor and several years 
back purchased a frame structure house to serve as their parsonage. This 
building was later sold and 1 a new modern up-to-date pastorium was 
built in 1960. 

In 1961 the name of the church was changed from Bostic Baptist Church 
to First Baptist Church of Bostic. On February 26, 1961 the church 
celebrated its 50th anniversary. 

The First Baptist Church has been served by several faithful and 
dedicated pastors in the past, with the capable Rev. Tyler L,eRoy serving 
as the present pastor. 

With gratitude for the many blessings of the years that are now history, 
the church faces the future with a sense of responsibility and an even 
greater possibility of service to her Lord and humanity.

Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



A motion was made that the committee on committees be instructed 
lo appoint a church counseling committee whose responsibility it would 
be to counsel with pastors, churches and church groups who are havng 
difficulties and offer any help that might be feasible, and that the 
constitution be changed to include this committee. It was suggested that 
our associational missionary not be a member of this committee. 

A recommendation to amend this motion to set the committee number 
.it five was approved. 

The motion as amended was passed. 

A motion carried that the sum of $800 from the Missionary's Salary 
be designated as "housing allowance.'' (This would include the cost of 
utilities that is provided for in the budget.) This is in line with pro- 
vision of the tax office and eliminate the necessity of his paying tax on 
this part of his sa'ctry unnecessarily. It will not affect in any way the 
financial responsibility of the association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martha Jean McFarland

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 

". . . the word of the Lord abides forever. That word is the good news 
which was preached to you." 

This year the American Bible Society is one hundred and fifty years 
old, but the Book that is our purpose for existence is ageless. Its message 
is as relevant today as it was in 1816. The Society is convinced that the 
Bible will continue to speak with power and truth in the unfolding space 
age. 

Since its founding, the American Bible Society has carried on a 
dynamic program of translation, production, distribution and encourage- 
ment of use of the Holy Scriptures. 

1. Translation. Continous counsel, supervision and financial assistance 
for translators in translating and revising the Scriptures into many 
of the world's languages and dialects. 

2. Publication. Manufacture, in the USA and Overseas, of volumes in 
many styles and sizes for varied needs and uses. 

3. Distribution. By sale and by donation (with particular consideration 
for the blind and those in need of a special ministry), through the Society's 
agencies and distributors, churches, Christian workers, missionaries, pas- 
tors, evangelists and other volunteer helpers. 

4. Encouragement of reading and use. Sponsorship of many programs 
in depth, such as the "Study of the Place and Use of the Bible" in the 
churches; Worldwide Bible Reading; Universal Bible Sunday; Reading of 
the Easter and Christmas Stores; Bible Book Clubs and others, through 
the press, radio, television and printed literature. 

The Society's work is made possible solely by voluntary gifts from 
churches and individuals. The single purpose of the Amercan Bible 
Soceity is to help in the sowing and sharing of God's word throughtout the 
world.

ANNUAL BOARD REPORT 

THE LIFE BENEFIT PLAN was inaugurated on October 1, 1964 to 
meet the need for supplemental life protection for our pastors and 
denominational employees, and has already achieved phenomnal success 
with more than ten thousand active participants. It offers protection 
ranging from ten to thirty thousand dollars for death under age 46 with 
graduated benefits thereafter for dues of $3.34 to $10.00 per month. It is 
still open for membership. 

THE HEALTH BENEFIT PLAN is an all-inclusive program of hospi- 
tal, surgical and major-medcal protection which is now being offered. The 
target date for the beginning of this plan is October 1, 1965. Five thousand 
apphcations are required by September 1 in order to put this program 
into effect. 

38 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



It has been said by many annuitants that the checks which come from 
the Annuity Board each month are like "Manna from Heaven." These 
checks vary in size, depending- upon the length of time one was a member 
and the amount of dues paid. 

Since the beginning of the Annuity Board in 1918, almost 47 million 
dollars have been paid in relief and annuity benefits to the men and women 
of God who serve Southern Baptists. In 1964 alone, 3 J /2 million was paid 
out to ministers and denominational workers or their families. 

Today more than 16,352 churches are in the Protection Program for 
their pastors. Approximately 10,000 of these churches are paying the total 
10% dues. In Sandy Run Association, 42 churches participate. 13 churches 
pay the 10% dnes for their pastors or employees. 

There are now 127 of the 176 educational institutions, hospitals, child- 
ren's homes, homes for the aged and other southwide agencies protected 
by one of the Annuity Board programs. This means more than 25,000 
members are in the Annuity Board's retirement plans. 

There are seven states with 70% or more of the churches in the plan, At 
the present time North Carolina has 46% of the churches in the Protection 
Program for ministers. 

Rev. Guy Cain, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, N. C. 27600, is jointly 
employed by the North Carolina Baptist Convention and the Annuity 
Board. He promotes the Board's total program of protection by trying 
to enlist all pastors, churches and denominational employees who are not 
enrolled in the program in North Carolina. He works to help those who are 
in the program to better understand the protection they have.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT 

Associational missions in the Sandy Run Association is ideally designed 
to reach out into every church to promote and strengthen the work. It is 
near by; it has something of the "know how;" and it is willing and 
anxious to help. However, the very nature and teachings of Baptists and of 
a Baptist church stop this help at the church's door if the church doesn't 
say, "We accept your help." Many of our churches could profit greatly if 
they would accept he!o in the Sunday Schools, the Training Union, the 
Woman's Missionary Union, the Brotherhood, Music, and Library areas 
of work. Also, many of them need help in the stewardship field of their 
work. 

During the year your missionary has visited in 118 services; delivered 
34 sermons and addresses ; taught 19 Sunday School classes ; presented 
pictures 33 times; helped ordain two preachers; conducted 2 associational 
VBS clinic and helped in one VBS; taught one five night study course; 
held 143 individual and committee conferences in addition to numerous 
telephone conferences ; attended 49 associational meetings and 32 clinics, 
conferences, and committee meetings outside the association ; published 12 
issues of bulletins and mailed 9,399 copies and 10,560 letters and cards ; and 
traveled 8,253 miles in addition to going to the Baptist Worldi Alliance. 

Your associational missionary would like to express his very great ap- 
preciation for the privilege of working with you another year and for your

many expressions of thoughtfulness and kindness. The association and 
the missionary would like to express great gratitude to the Florence 
Church for furnishing a real nice associational office. We are most grateful 
and fortunate to have a most capable associatonal clerk and secretary, 
Miss Martha Jean McFarland. Likewise, we have a treasurer, Mr. P. B. 
Price, who has done a wonderful job, and we are greatly indebted to him. 
Then we want to thank very sincerely the officers and leaders of the 
association and the wonderful leaders and workers in the Sunday School, 
Training Union, Woman's Missionary Union, Brotherhood, Music, and 
Library organizations.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

The Baptist Foundation of North Carolina was accepted: and authorized 
by the Baptist State Convention in 1919. Tt has steadily increased in its 
growth as an effective witness and has found a permanent place in Baptist 
work. 

When the Committee of 25 made its request in 1959, that the Baptist 
Foundation be put to work on a larger scale, its total assets were $245,131. 
Since that time the assets have more than doubled. 

The purpose for the Baptist Foundation is for the processing and 
administering of funds for all institutions and agencies controlled by the 
Convention. C. Gordon Maddrey, Executive Secretary, says, ''The Baptist 
Foundation seeks to put a stronger emphasis on the Stewardship of Ac- 
cumulated Income." 

There are many ways that the Foundation assists a person in making 
his gifts through accumulated income, such as: 1. by living trusts; 2. by 
gift annuit}': and 3. by bequests in wills. 

The Foundation will assist you at }*our request.

ASSOCIATIONAL BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

A Brotherhood in a Baptist church is an organization of the men of 
the church for the purpose of advancing the cause of Christ through 
majoring on a program of missionary education and missionary promo- 
tion designed to inform, inspire, motivate, and involve men in the 
missions tasks of the church locally and unto the ends of the earth. The 
organization is also responsible for seeing that the young men and boys of 
the church are likewise enlisted in the study and involvement of mis- 
sions. The program permeates such major areas as Christian witnessing 
and personal stewardiship as they vitally relate to missions in the 
community, state, nation and world. 

Our associational Brotherhood organizations is designed to strengthen 
and reinforce the local church Brotherhoods in their Christ-given mis- 
sionary tasks. This is done through associational meetings of information, 
inspiration, and training of the officers, including the workers with the 
boys. j

Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



This past year we have had! such helpful meetings for the men, in- 
cluding a workshop last November, and at present there are men steward- 
ship teams visiting the churches on invitation, endeavoring to strengthen 
the cause of Christ. 

On behalf of the boys, there has been an associational RA Leader- 
ship Training Course of three nights. A very successful associational 
RA Conclave was held last fall ; a fine Campbell Conclave was held 
in May; and the RA's had the week of June 21-26 reserved at Camp 

CaRAway.

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

The care of dependent, neglected and homeless children is the central 
mission of the Baptist Children's Homes. Our people have supported this 
ministry in a most generous and commendable way. 

Our homes are serving as many people who need our help as possible. 
They are dependent upon North Carolina Baptists for support. Every gift 
is appreciated and is used for the purpose for which it is given. Income 
through the Cooperative Program is becoming increasingly important. 

The Thanksgiving Offering of last year is approaching three hundred 
ten thousand dollars ($310,000.00) and is the largest ever given. 

Two estates have made possible fine buildings which have just been 
completed on the Mills Home campus. These buildings will fill a most use- 
ful purpose in the educational and religious life of the Mills Home family. 

There is a growing need for Christian foster homes. Many families are 
finding an opportunity for service in caring for foster children. Thus, 
many boys and girls are privileged to grow up in Christian homes who 
otherwise would not have this opportunity. Should you have an "extra 
measure of love" to share in this way, the Homes would like to know of 
your interest. 

The need for a Home in the western part of the state, to serve the 
people west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has been discussed. The pos- 
sibility of such a home is meeting with genuine interest and enthusiasm. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and members of the staff of the 
Children's Homes are committed to the task of maintaining a Christian 
program of child care — a program that will merit the undivided support 
and loyalty of our people and that will bring honor to' our Lord. To that 

end it is their purpose to meet as effectively as possible, the challenges, of 
our day.

CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS REPORT 

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE 

Beverage alcohol is enemy number one in our state and nation. The 
wise man said about strong drink (Prov. 23 :32) : "At the last it biteth 
like a serpent and stingeth like an ader." Strong drink has sent more 
souls unprepared to Judgment than all the wars and pestilences since 

43 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



the beginning of the human race. Officers have estimated that over half of 
all highway wrecks are caused by drivers under the influence of alcohol. 
Near 1,100 people have lost their lives on the N. C. highways this year. 

''Many drinkers first started by taking a social drink. We will use 
the name John Doe who had a good job and fine family consisting of 
his wife and three children. The habit of using liquor grew on him. His 
wife could stand it no longer. She took the children and left him after 
'kicking him out.' Today John Doe is a physical wreck — health gone, 
family gone, and he is on the mercy of the world — all because he 
started out as a social drinker." 

"The American people spend over ten billion dollars for strong drink 
annually. North Carolinians about one hundred million dollars yearly 
for strong drink. There are over half a million alcoholics in N. C. now, 
and the rate is growing yearly. This terrible waste o'f money and human 
life could be eliminated if we could abolish strong drink. The brewers 
of this state and nation are doing their best to get more ABC stores in 
operation. Town after town in. N. C. has voted in liquor stores this year. 
We need more people with a backbone and less "wishbone." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Fred Bryant 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

Christian Education is very important in this day and age because 
through this great channel people can be more aware of the needs of 
other people and therefore those who are better informed can be more 
instrumental in helping others use their talents, time and means to the 
glory of God, in all phases of life, in every field of work, our Christian 
influence can help others come to Christ and our Christian Colleges can 
certainly help to lay the proper foundation for the life that lies ahead. 

A writer once said that Cod purposely left the world unfinished. He 
did this so that man could put to use his creativness, his imagination, 
his curiosity and bis earnest desires to take God-given raw materials 
and mold them into things of beauty and usefulness. 

Man was given the ability to think, to learn, to choose, but, he must 
be guided into right paths, taught the right values and attitudes. Chris- 
tian Education, based on those teachings of the Master, can lead man 
into cultivating both his mental and moral being. Our places of learn- 
ing, our church supported c >lleg< and schools are desperately needed 
during this period of history. They arc needed to teach us that with 
knowledge goes humility and wisdom, and that with freedom goes 
responsiblitv, and unless they clearly take this place w< are likely to 
make wrong choices, develop wrong attitudes and end up destroyed 
by the very knowledge we have acquired.

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMISSION REPORT 

Recognizing that a moral revolution is taking place in the nation, the 
Christian Life Commission has sought to help Southern Baptists relate 
the gospel to the specific moral problems of contemporary life, This 

44 



Minutes- of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



includes such aspects of daily experience as family life, race relations, 
moral issues, daily work and Christian citizenship. 

The responsibilities of the modern Christian to society seem to multi- 
ply for two apparent reasons. One reason is the growing awareness 
that the gospel is a message or salvation, love, mercy, and justice for 
all men. Moreover, the sovereignty of God and the Lordship of Christ 
extend to every area and relationship of life. Sinister forces of unright- 
eousness are invading his home and community. These include a growing 
ing traffic in obsecene literature, an alarming increase in alcoholism, 
acceleration of divorce statistics, and the tragic excesses of race prej- 
udice. 

These invading forces have received the special attention of the Christian 
Life Commission through its literature program, its special conferences, 
and through staff consulation and services. Written materials from the 
Commission had a total circulation last year of o0,913,165. 

The Christian Life Commission selected two areas of its work for 
special emphasis in its annual conferences at the Southern Baptist 
assemblies. These were a study of gambling and the problem of alcohol. 

As always, the Christian Life Commission is eagar to strengthen associ- 
ational ministries in the continuing task of creating a moral climate in 
which the Southern Baptist witness for Christ can be most effective. 

"For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence 
the ignorance of foolish men" (1 Peter 2:15).

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE REPORT 

"Find out what a person reads, and you will quickly discover his real 
interest in life.'' 

Reading is important if we want to become mature Christians with 
good understanding and sound judgment, flow we read is important 
too. VV. Wirt said, "Get a habit, a passion for reading ; but read system- 
atically, closely, thoughtfuly, analyzng every subject as you go along, and 
laying it up carefuiiy and safely in your menu ry. ft is only by this mode 
that your information will be at the same time extensive, accurate, and 
useful." 

The Christian who is interested in becoming the mature Christian God 
wants him to be has learned the value of Christian literature. He regularly 
reads the Bible. He reads books and magazines devoted to the Christian 
faith. He reads carefuiiy, thoughtfully, and prayerfully. He analyzes what 
he reads and lays it up carefuiiy and safely in his memory. He applies it 
to his own life, and reaps the rich harvest of abundant living. 

Among the fine Christian literature available today is our State Conven- 
tion publication, the Biblical Recorder. For 132 years the Biblical Recorder 
iias been the dependable medium of information for North Carolina 
Baptists. It offers an accurate and comprehensive source of religious in- 
formation which secular papers do not provide. Every Baptist family 
should consider subscribing to the Biblical Recorder. Other denominational 
publications, such as Charity and Children, Home Missions, The Com- 
mission, and Home Life, are of great value to the Christian family. 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



With serious moral issues facing us on every hand, Baptists would do 
well to see that their homes have an abundance of Christian literature 
and that this literature is made available to others as w r ell.

EVANGELISM REPORT 

Repeatedly God's Word pictures the purpose of this earthly life as 
learning to walk with God. As we walk more closely with Him, in our 
doing and thinking, we become ready, like Enoch, to go on with Him into 
the unknown. The goal of Evangelism is to bring people, through Jesus 
Christ, to walk with God. The doors are gradually closing associational- 
wise on 1965, and are not of such that any can boast, but thanks to our 
Heavenly Father some have come to His Way. During this year our 
churches have reported the following additions : By Baptism, 471. By 
letter 455, making a total of 926. 

However, the most important part of Evangelism comes after people 
join the church. They need instruction and guidance if they are to catch up 
in knowledge and attitude, with those who have come ahead of them. Too, 
they are now more teachable than they will ever be again. Our churches 
are indebted to train new converts in the development of Christian habits 
and fellowship. 

Our Baptist fellowship should anticipate much as we concentrate on the 
year's theme, U A Church Fulfilling Its Mission Through Proclamation

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

As of May, 1965, the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist 
Convention reported a total of 1,923 missionaries in active service. The 
latest report places the number above the 2,000 mark. These are serving

Mission work is carried on through a varying number of institutions on 
each mision field — churches, schools, hospitals publication plants, and 
good will centers. The goal of each is evangelization. 

Space will not permit information and facts that each church ought 
to have concerning our mission work aboard. Therefore, let me suggest

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission Department of the Southern Baptist Convention 
has five divisions of work. They are: (1) chaplaincy, (2) evangelism, 
(3) education and promotion, (4) church loans, (5) missions. The mission 
work of Home Mission Department includes language groups, city work, 
pioneer, associational missions, and National Baptists. 

Serious spiritual problems exist all across our nation. The unchurched 
in the United States exceed 75 million, and the number grows by one 
million a year. Millions of lost people will never be confronted with the 
gospel forcefully unless our churches reach out to establsh a gospel 
witness in the immediate area of need. 

Through your Home Mission Board, in cooperation with churches, 
associations, and state conventions, more than 2,400 missionaries are 
supported. There are urgent appeals now for 150 more ■ — for Spanish 
language work, in Slavic missions, with Italians, Indians, Eskimos, in 
mission centers, and nurses. All must be dedicated, God-called, well- 
Lrained persons. 

Our Home Mission work is growing in need and importance. It has 
been pointed out by personal director of Home Mission work that this may 
be the area in which we give to the world a real example of Christianity 
in a world filled with conflicts. Let us join our hearts in prayer for the 
work that is ahead for the Home Mission Board.

REPORT ON HOMES FOR THE AGING 

The day that North Carolina Baptists launched a ministry to the aging 
fourteen years ago was a good day indeed Since that time four Homes 
for the Aging have come into being, and a fifth one is in the making. Many 
elderly peop 1 e have been blessed by this compass'onate ministry through 
the years, and today 160 people are in residence at Resthaven, and the 
Hayes Florae in Winston-Salem, the Albemarle Home in Albemarle, and 
the Hamilton Home in Hamilton. When the proposed new Home at 
Yanceyville is completed, there will be capacity for 200. It is anticipated 
that construction will begin on the Yanceyville Home during 1965. 

This labor of Christian love and nurture is ours together, and we could 

48 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Bantist Association 



not operate w : thout the concern, the prayers, and the financal support of 
our Baptist people. This financial aid from the churches comes to us 
through two very vital avenues-the Special Day Offering, received on the 
third Sunday of February each year, and the Cooperative Program. 
Special Day Offering receipts for 1964 were at an all-time high and 
exceeded $96,000,00. Through these g : fts we are able to supplement from 
80% to 90% of our needy residents who could not be with us otherwise. 

It is urgently hoped that the Special Day Offering for 1965 will be the 
greatest ever, especially in view of the pressing and ever-increasing needs 
of the aging in our midst who seek our help. The waiting list now is 175 and 
grows almost daily. 

As the great heart of the Saviour yearns for all in the various areas of 
human need, we are grateful that He has commissioned us to include also 
a special ministry to the aged among us. We have responded to His plea, 
we are giving an answer to Him for these elderly people who are very 
dear to Him, and we pray that every church in our State Baptist Conven- 
tion will be very careful to give increasing emphasis to this vital ministry.

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

More than 35,000 sick people were seen in the clinics of our Baptist 
Medical Center in Winston-Salem last year, and more than 19,000 v/ere 
hospitilized for bed care. These sick people came from all sections of 
our state, out of all kinds of financial circumstances, and with almost every 
type of serious disease and sickness known to man. Most of them were 
sent by their local doctors, because they had problems which were 
difficult of diagnosis or treatment, and needed specialized facilities and 
skills such as those found at our Baptist Hospital. 

In addition to the s ; ck people who were served, there were more than 
700 persons in training in the various fields of medical care and Chris- 
tian service. These students were studying in ten different schools, and 
in other fields of training in our Medical Center, and will go out to serve 
as physicians, nurses, technicians, pastors and other Christian workers, 
in our communities and churches throughout North Carolina and on our 
mission fields, around the world. These schoo 1 s offer excellent op- 
portunities, and they are interested in qualified, Baptist young people 
who wish to invest their lives in useful service to their fellow man and 
in the Kingdom of God. 

The ministry of our hospital to people who are seriously ill and in 
meager circumstances lies at the very heart of its total work. All of our 
Mother's Day Offering are used for this purpose : when the doctors have 
given their skilled services without charge to those patients, and the 
money available from all other sources is added, every dollar we give 
is multiplied nine times over in free service to those who need help. 

It is a high privilege for us in our churches to minister in the name 
of the Great Physician, through our hospital, to these multitudes who 
are sick. It will be a welcome voice when the King shall come in His 
glory and we can hear Him say: "Come, ye blessed of my Father; for 
I was sick, and ye visited me."

LIBRARY REPORT 

In every active, progressive Baptist church there are calls for materials 
to meet the needs of individual members and to supplement the activities 
of the educational program. 

Therefore, believing that the Church Library is a lasting ministry, we 
have based our associational program meetings this year on : Technical 
Knowledge, Promotion and Caring for Materials. 

In our class in the Central Training School we studied "How to Get 
Started." Our enrollment was 11 with 9 churches represented and 8 mem- 
bers receiving awards for "A Church Organized and Functioning." For 
our May meeting, the Library Staff of Florence Church presented a skit, 
"'No Room." We had 15 present and 6 churches represented. In August 
Mr. Frederic M. Marble, a representative of Gaylord Bros. Inc. gave 
a two hour workshop on book mending, with 10 present and 5 churches 
represented. 

To help churches establish a resource center, the Baptist Sunday School 
Board, with assistance from other convention agencies, offers Free 
Library Material to each Southern Baptist Church or Mission, beginning 
a Library for the first time. The. N,. C. Baptist State Convention has 
appointed Dr. Herman H. Thley as the contact person for Church Libra- 
ries in our state. 

The Church Library Organization of the Sandy Run Baptist Associa- 
lion is organized to serve even the smallest church. We cannot do our 
best service wthout your help. Harold E. Ingraham says, and we quote: 
"No movement — that's right — no movement ever gained the attention 
of even the majority of our churches unless it went through the associa- 
tion." 

Don't forget — The Church Library is your Partner in your Common 
task of Proclamation and Witness.

Mrs. Frank Willis 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON LOCATION OF NEW 
CHURCHES AND MISSIONS 

It has been a privilege to serve on the Missions Committee of the Sandy 
Run Baptist Association. 

We have tried this year to find places where mission work is needed. We 
have found that our sixty-four churches are well located and arc reaching 
the people as well as can be expected. 

So far as we know all the Rest Homes are be ; ng mimstered to by some 
church, and there is no need of a new work being started. 

We are now holding services in the State Pris >n Camp each fourth 
Sunday. We have witnessed severa! professions of faith and have helped 
some of the prisoners to improve their relationship in their homes. We 
tried to establish a system to send workers from our brotherhood to teach 
the Sunday school lesson and council with the prisoners, but we found 
that the time had been taken by other churches.

MUSIC MINISTRY REPORT 

The annual Christmas Carol Sing was held Monday evening, December 

14, 1964 on the town square of Forest City with a large group attending 
to sing the beloved carols of Christmas. 

The Music Ministry of the association participated in the Central 
Training School in February providing music classes in voice, conducting, 
and advanced music theory. 

Several of our churches entered choirs in the Regional Cho<r Festivals 
making excellent grades of B and above sett'ng for the association an 
excellent standard. 

The Musk Ministry cooperated with the Gardner-Webb College Fine 
Arts Department for the Billv Graham meeting during the Convocation. 
Many of the churches responded to the ca 1 l and sang : n the great choir at 
this meeting. 

I, Edgar L. Lineberger, appreciate the fine cooperation received from 
the pastors and ministers of music of our association during the past 
year. Let us continue to worship and praise God through mus ; c.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS 

The Ordinations Committe met three times during the past year. 

On November 13, 1964 the committee met at the call of the Shiloh 
and Piedmont Churches for the purposes of examining Carl Walker for 
ordination to the ministrv. The committee recommended that the Sh : loh 
Church ordain him, and the ordinat : on service was held on November 

15, 1964. 

The committee met on May 18, 1965 at the call of the Glenwood and the 
Faith Churches for the purpose of examining Char 1 es Street for ordina- 
tion. The committee recommended that the Glenwood Church ordain him, 
which service was held on May 23 at the Glenwood Church. Brother 
Street is now pastor of the Faith Church. 

The third meeting was held at the Florence Church on August 20, 1965 
for the purpose of examining Raymond Crook for ordination. Upon re- 
commendation from the cornnrttee, he was ordained on August 22 at the 
Florence Church. Brother Crook is now pastor of the Mountain View 
Church, Rutherfordton. 

We urge that all churches cooperate with the existing ordination 
committee and contact them relative to ordaining anyone to the ministry.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

South Mountain Baptist Camp continues to bless the lives of the great 
numbers who attended her various activities. Hundreds of campers had a 
rich and deeper experience with God and learned a lot about our church 
work. J 

There were five GA camps with 831 attending ; four RA camps with 417 
attending; 243 campers who received honor camper awards, and 630 
earned the Star camper award. To receive these honors, the campers must 
study on Fordward Steps or Manual study. Also, it is necessary to read a 
mission book. There were eight missionaries on the camp programs this 
summ er. 

There was a total of 2,030 who attended the various activities during 
this season. We had an increased number of youth retreats, overnight 
camps, and supper meetings. Campers came from 111 churches. 135 
attended from our Association from 7 churches. 

The theme for the summer was "Christ, The Hope of the World" 
(Col. 1 :27). 739 were inspired to make some kind of decision for Christ. 95 
professions of faith, 605 rededications and 39 for special services. 

For years crushed ice has been hauled in at the camp. Members of the 
(amp committee authorized the purchase of an ice maker. We have the 
faith that enough individuals and churches will make donations to pay 
for it. It is a 200 lbs. capacity. The cost was $714.00 installed. Donations 
liave taken .care of over $400.00, and we have saved on the price of ice. 

We are happy to report that the camp received an "A" rating from the 
North Carolina Health Department. 

Even though the Camp fees are unsually low for the campers, we have 
been operating on the money received from them. We received ap- 
proximately $3,000.00 over and above our seasonal expenses which is 
applied to the salary of the camp direcor who is employed the year 
round. We look to the churches for about $1,000.00 of his salary. He is 
available to help promote camping anywhere in Region Eight. Most of 
the money received from the churches is used for development and 
improvements, and to pay on the indebtness. The debt to Mr. B. IT. Poteat 
of Morganton is $2,5000.00.

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

This Great State of North Carolina has now <>ne of the greatest chal- 
lenges ever yet before her. 

The reason is that her population is larger than ever before. 

These people that number well over 4,600,000, approximately half of 
which are not affiliated with any kind of church, need the concern of the 
Baptists of North Carolina. 

The growing industrial trade of the state means more people to run 
these jobs. Corning from every walk of life, these are our responsibilities. 
To work effectively with the ever increasing population we need better 
trained leadership.

Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



Jesus sent out his followers on at least two occasions. In each instance 
they returned to report their experiences. Jesus in the Great Commission 
and Paul in Ephesians 3 :10 gave the responsibility for missions to the New 
Testament Churches. The third epistle of John was written to enlist local 
people in receiving, hearing and supporting the ones who went. May we 
North Carolina Baptists pray that God will open our eyes to the challeng- 
ing work that is needed — sharing Christ with others of North Carolina. 

It is encouraging to see the State Mission program in its ministry which 
reaches over the entire state working with Migrants, juvenile, Rehabili- 
tation, Deaf, Military Personnel, Pastors, Schools, Church Loan, Church 
Lot Aid, Special Summer Mission work, and the Literacy Mission work. 

When your church makes its contribution to State Missions, it is help- 
ing to undergird the mission work that reaches thousands who need the 
message of our Blessed Saviour.

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

The acceptance and practice of the principle of stewardship is the under- 
girding force of the whole Christian movement. For this reason, a program 
of education, cultivation, and promotion of Christian stewardship is of 
primary importance in the life of the Christian Church. 

The concept of stewardship is neither fragmentary nor narrow. Jesus 
taught man that all a man is and has are gifts from God. "Christian 
stewardship is the practice of systematic and proportionate giving of time, 
abilities, from God to be used in His service, for the benefit of all mankind.'' 

Our Association has sought to help our local churches by promoting the 
''Stewarship Development Program for Baptist Associations." It utilizes 
the associational unit to reach every church with (1) methods to increase 
the church budget, (2) challenges to increase the Co-operative Program, 
and (3) incentive to support adequately the associatonal mission program. 

We had an Associational Stewardship Workshop at the Florence Church 
last July. Rev. Ottis J. Hagler and Rev. Harold White of our State leader- 
ship led the conference. We were reminded again (1) of our account- 
ability unto God for all that we are and have, (2) that liberal giving must 
begin with the tithe, and (3) the church is the primary channel for our 
giving. ! ■ 

The Tithe Now! Campaign was emphasized. This program is of 
tremendous importance. Baptists across our land are giving to the Lord's 
work barely one-third of the tithe potential. This is based) on resident 
church member figures rather than per capita giving. 

The Leadership Supper in August was a wonderful success. The purpose 
of this supper was to help us and our churches promote and strengthen the 
Kingdom of God through our financial stewardship. One of the highlights 
of the evening was the stewardship testimonies by Christian laymen. 

Brother Sam Hargett has ready a number of teams of men to visit our 
churches upon invitation on Sunday mornings to present stewardship in- 
formation and bear stewardship testimonies. We hope that you will invite 
these men to your church.

Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist 'Association 



RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That the churches participate in the Tithe Now! Emphasis. 

2. The Fonvard Program of Christian Stewardship and the Growth in 
Christian Stewardship programs are now available to churches in our 
association. The Forward Program is for all churches. The Growth in 
Christian Stewardship Program has been designed especially for churches 
up to three hundred in membership. We urge every church in our associa- 
tion to use one of these two programs in developing Christian stewards 
and enlisting tithers. 

3. That we engage regularly in prayer for cooperative causes and give 
special emphasis to prayer for these causes during the October Cooperative 
Program Emphasis. 

4. That the churches give regularly through the Cooperative Program. 
We are witnessing our greatest advance in history with 52.27'% of the 
southwide Cooperative Program dollar being aUocated to Foreign 
Missions.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

This has been the year of the Adult Thrust in Sunday School work. 
There are some of the churches in our association that have been making 
an effort to implement th's plan of strategy. The idea of the Adult Thrust 
is one of necessity not of fancy. The most necessary task that we have 
in the enlisting of the great host of unenlisted adults in our communities 
for Bible study and commitment to Jesus Christ. It is a defin'te area in 
which we need to carry out our marching orders of The Great Com- 
mission. 

The Sunday Schools of our churches have been assigned the tasks of 
teaching the Bible, reaching the unreached, leading all church members 
to worship, witness, learn, and minister daily, furnishing workers for 
various projects, and interpertmg the work of the church and denomina- 
tion. So the Sunday School is important to the church in its basic functions 
of worship, proclamation, education and ministry. 

The goal for our Southern Baptist Sunday Schools as far as enrolment 
is concerned is ten million pupi 1 s by 1970. This means that we must have an 
enrolment gain of approximately 30% in the next live years. Here in North 
Carolina our goal is 1 million by 1970. In order to do this we must give 
outreach priority. 

Eet us in Sandy Run Association accept a net enrolment increase of 3% 
for 1966, 4% for 1967, 5'% for 1968, 6% for 1969, and 7% for 1970. We will 
grow great Sunday Schools as we show compassionate concern for the 
unreached. Evangelism, stewardship, missions, discipleship — all are 
waiting upon outreach. 

Dr. Arthur Flake many years ago advocated a simple growth formula. 
First, locate the prospects. Then enlarge the organizations. Then provide 
needed space. Then enlist and train workers, and visit the people. If every 
Sunday School would follow this formula, we would reach more people for 
Bible study; our baptism would increase; Christian stewardship will 
become a reality and our churches would be strengthened.

If your church does not observe January Bible Study Week, why not try 
it this year ? Plan to have a full ten days of Vacation Bible School and a 
mission Vacation Bible School. Plan an adequate program of training for 
your workers this year. Get a copy of Adult Thrust Plan Book, Year 2 and 
see how interesting this plan of work really is. Plan to attend Associa- 
tional conferences and Sunday School weeks at Caswell and Ridgecrest. As 
the Sunday School advances the church will advance too. 

The Sunday Schools in the association reported a total enrolment of 
14,497 as compared with 14,965 in 1964.

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

The Training Union emphasis for 1964-65 was : "A Church Fulfilling 
Its Functions Through Worship." The theme for the year was: "That 
Men Shall Worship Him" (Zephaniah 2:11). 

"M" Night at Cliff sidle Baptist Church on Monday night, December 7, 
1964, gave inspiration for our entire year. Rev. Gideon M. Long, Jr. pastor 
of the Cudd Memorial Baptist Church, Spartanburg, S. C. brought the 
inspirational message. The attendance was 414 with .35 churches and 29 
pastors participating. 

The Associational Training Union Tournament this year was very well 
represented by the churches of the association. However, a special effort 
should be made for each church with a Training Union to participate in 

the tournament next year. 

Many new changes are taking place in Training Union work. This 
should make it even more imperative that every church member be a mem- 
ber of the Training Union also.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

Our year began with the organization of two new WMS groups at 
Wilson anal Fairview churches, organized under the WMS Plan for 
Societies without Circles. During the year we have had 2 new GA organiza- 
tions and one new Sunbeam and YWA organization. 

Our Executive Board members taught the Leadership Courses for 
WMS, YWA, and GA's February 1-4 in the Associational Central Train- 
ing School at First Baptist Church, Forest City. 

Mrs. Lorena Hicks, Mission Study Chairman, conducted a Mission 
Study Institute, January 21 for those who were to teach the Home 
Mission Series of books. Several teachers presented the helps for teaching 
the five books for the different age groups. Mrs. Hicks planned for the 
study of "My Money and God" to be taught in each of our four groups of 
churches. These classes were held at Shiloh, Concord, Goode's Creek and 
Race Path Churches on July 29 and attended by 225 people. In addition to 
this, Mrs. Hicks has the opportunity to teach 396 people in 16 classes in 
various churches in the association. In some of these 2 or 3 churches came 

55 



Minutes of the Sandy Run Baptist Association 



together to study. We feel that our people are being well informed of 
mission needs and opportunities. 

In our Community Missions works, Mrs. Eugene Wilson, chairman, 
arranged a Literacy Workshop at Florence Church February 22-23 where 
eight people completed the course and qualified as teachers of the Lau- 
back Method. A small library has been started at the prison farm, through 
the cooperation of several of our WMS's in providing books. A ministry 
to the girls at Alexander School has been a part of our associational work 
with various churches taking one or more girls as their special re- 
sponsib lity. 

Mrs. W. A. Stroud, Prayer Chairman, planned the Associational WMU 
Prayer Retreat held August 23rd at Haynes Memorial Church. We were 
fortunate to have Miss Bertha Smith to lead this. We feel that the 16 
churches represented by 65 people who attended will be blessed as never 
before if each church would form a prayer group to pray together 
regularly for specific needs or problems in their churches. 

Our Stewardship Chairman, Mrs. Van Carroll, has reminded us through 
the year of our need to be better stewards as she has promoted the special 
offerings, helped with the teaching of the stewardship book, and presented 
the skit, "The Money Cake,*' at the Annual WMU meeting on April 29 
at Prospect Church. Camp's Creek WMU assisted in entertaining the 
250 who attended the Annual Session. Thirty-four of our forty-eight 
societies were represented. Guest speakers were Mrs. Woodrow Daves, 
Gaston Association; Mr. and Mrs. Sam Young, summer missionaries 
in California under the Home Mission Board; Mrs. Louise Burgess, 
State Sunbeam Director; and Miss Bertha Smith, Missionary in China 
and Taiwan. 

Our YWA Annual Meeting was a prayer retreat this year planned by 
Mrs. Charles Bostic, YWA Director. This was at Mt. Pleasant (C) 
Church, May 8th, with Miss Fay Tunmire, missionary in the Philip- 
pines, as guest speaker. 

Mrs. Audley Harnrick, newly elected Sunbeam Director, began her 
term of service by having a Sunbeam Day Camp at Drewery Dobbins 
Church, August 5th. Miss Bertie Lee Kendr'ck, missionary in Hawaii, 
was our missionary for the day. The children enjoyed her slides and 
stories of boys and girls she teaches in Hawaii. Members of the WMU 
Executive Board assisted with the hand craft, stories, and drama. 
Several of the YWA's and one RA helped with the groups and songs 
and recreation. 

Three Hundred and Sixty GA's attended the GA's World's Fair, May 
1st at the First Baptist Church, Forest City. Mrs. Elwood R. Orr, GA 
Director, used the theme, "Go ye therefore into all the world . . . That 
the world through H m might be saved." Exhibits of curios and maps from 
countries around the world were arranged in four areas of the church 
for tours following the program in the sanctuary. Afterwards, a fun 
time was enjoyed in the social hall and the meeting was concluded with 
a picnic tmch. 

Members of the WMU Executive Board attended the State Human 
Relations Conference, February 25 in Winston-Salem and the State 
WMU Annual Session in Greensboro, March 16-18. Mrs. Audley Ham- 
rick and Mrs. J. E. Marchman attended the State Sunbeam Day Camp 
Clinic in Marion, April 28. Five members of the board were at Ridge-

Leader's Workshop. These led conferences in our Associational Annual 
Leadership Conference, September 16 at First Baptist Church, Forest City. 
144 women took advantage of this opportunity for training for the new 
year's work. I , j J |' 

Our WMU women also assisted in securing the reservations for the 
Associational Stewardship Supper on September 2. The Executive 
Board has sought throughtout the year to co-operate in every way with 
the total Associational program. 

In addition to participating in the WMU activities within the associ- 
ation, I assisted in two of the four State Missionary Study Institutes, 
January 12-14, in Asheville and Lexington, presenting the teaching helps 
for the Junior GA Home Mission Book, "The Dark's A-Creepin'." T 
also participated in the "M" Night program at Cliffside. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. James F. Marchman, Jr.
